Tequila Lime Chipotle Wings

We eat wings once a week so I love finding sauces to add into our rotation. This is a keeper, for sure.

Tequila Lime Chipotle Wings

 I seasoned the wings with salt, pepper, and chili powder @Village Idiot sent to me.

 I cooked them raised direct at 300F for a little over an hour.

 The sauce is Tequila, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, honey, garlic, limes, lemon, and cilantro.

 I used my small Ninja processor for the sauce, but you can also just finely chop the peppers and garlic with a knife.

 Add the sauce to a pan and simmer until the sauce thickens some, about 10-20 minutes.

Once your wings are cooked:

 Toss them with the sauce:

 Add the lemon zest and chopped cilantro:

 These Tequila Lime Chipotle Chicken Wings have the perfect combination of heat, sweet, smoke, and tang.

Instructions

  2. Chop the cilantro and set aside for later.
  3. Combine the tequila, honey, lime/lemon juice, garlic, chipotle peppers and adobo sauce in a small food processor and mix until well combined.
  4. If you don't have a processor, finely chop the peppers and garlic with a knife.
  5. Add the sauce to a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  6. Simmer until the sauce thickens some, about 10-20 minutes.
  7. Toss the sauce with the cooked chicken wings.
  8. Add the lemon zest and chopped cilantro.

    Have these on right now!! They look awesome, can't wait to eat. However, the sauce is a little hot for the miss, so I am only tossing half of them. 
  • @eggingout1983 WOW~ They look so good! :heart:

    We made this tonight.  It is a keeper.  The only change, we left out the cilantro. Neither on of us are all that fond of the herb.  Didn't use all the sauce on the chicken, used it to sauce the tater tots too.  Wow Kristi you did good.  Going to use this on the next pork tenderloin.
