Spicy Lime Baked Chicken Wings Recipe.
These wings would be perfect with sweet potatoes (baked, fried, or roasted – pick your favorite!) or maybe some quick roasted cauliflower. They’re perfect for Game Day, but also easy enough that you could make them just for dinner when it’s a night for a treat.
