Grilled Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings with Tequila and Lime

The Best Chicken Wings Ever

These Honey Chipotle chicken Wings are, by far, the best wings I have ever had.  They are sweet and savory, they are crispy and spicy yet incredibly tender and juicy on the inside.  They have best flavor of just about any barbecue sauce and we’ll talk about the secret to that in just a minute.  But I definitely think that the grilling definitely takes this recipe to a whole new level.  But don’t let that scare you if you don’t have a grill.  I think these spicy buffalo style wings would still be absolutely fantastic fried in oil or baked in the oven.

Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings Sauce

This Chicken Wing Sauce is phenomenal.  I mean it.  I’t fantastic.  My secret for this recipe is definitely in the sauce.  I use Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce to start, then I add a couple of Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce and a fresh clove of Garlic but it doesn’t end there.  Since it’s got that pepper spice I balance it out with Tequila and Lime.  Now, of course, the Tequila is optional but the lime is definitely essential because it adds that Mexican style flavor everyone loves in their Mexican food.  But if you’re not shy, I highly recommend following this recipe to a “T” and add that Tequila.  It takes this Honey Chipotle Chicken Wing Sauce to whole new level.

Wasabi Chicken Wings Ingredients:

1 oz Tempura Dipping Sauce
1 oz Rice Wine Vinegar
1 tbsp Honey
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1 tsp Sesame Oil
1 tbsp Wasabi
1 Green Onion, chopped scallions
1 tsp Bonito Flakes

Fry the Wings at 350 degrees for 8 to 12 Minutes.  You want the chicken to float to the top and turn golden brown.  Baking is another option if you don’t want the oil.  Be sure to salt the wings before baking or after frying.  Mix all the wet ingredients together, then add to the cooked Chicken Wings.  Add the Scallions and then give them a good toss in a large bowl.  Plate and sprinkle the bonito flakes evenly across the top of the Wasabi Chicken Wings.
