We’ve been compensated by QVC for this post

Jules loves creating a comfortable place for people to gather, and I love feeding those people once they’ve gathered. I also love adjusting classic, traditionally heavy party foods to be a little more healthy without people feeling like they’re being cheated out of enjoyment.

QVC has all kinds of stuff to help you get ready for your upcoming party, and today I’m sharing three versions of my unfried chicken wings, Dry Rubbed, Honey Chipotle, and Lime Cilantro–they’re all delicious, and all super easy to make. Add these to your party spread and you’ll definitely have a happy crowd.

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 5 mins
Course: Appetizer, Main Course
Cuisine: American
Keyword: chicken, chicken wings, chipotle, honey

Lime & Cilantro Unfried Chicken Wings

A fresh, delicious, glazed version of my dry rub unfried chicken wings. 
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 5 mins
Course: Appetizer, Main Course
Cuisine: American
Keyword: chicken, chicken wings, cilantro, lime
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 4 lbs Dry Rub Unfried Chicken Wings see recipe above
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup lime juice fresh squeezed
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro
  • 1/4 cup honey

Instructions

  • While the wings are cooking, make the glaze by first heating the olive oil and minced garlic on medium heat until the garlic starts to sizzle. Remove from heat and set aside to cool (don't let the garlic cook too long or it will burn - just trying to get the harshness out of it)
  • Once cooled, add the garlic and oil to the remaining ingredients and whisk to combine. Drop the wings into the glaze, toss to coat evenly, and enjoy!

    I made 1 and 3 for dinner tonight. The dry rub flavor is delicious, but you if you’re using table salt you may want to use less. I only had table salt available (nothing chunkier) and it was a tad too salty (and I am a salt lover). Will make again, very tasty otherwise.

    Your recipes always look amazing!

  3. Patricia says:

    Can you bake them in the oven on sheet pans? Would they need to be on racks to elevate them? I don’t have an air fryer and don’t want one more appliance in my tiny kitchen. These look interesting.
