a pinch, or more if desired
Cut the wings at the joints and discard the tips. Place the wings in a large bowl, set aside.
Add the olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, sugar, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt and garlic powder into a bowl and whisk to combine.
Pour the marinade over the chicken wings, toss to combine and thoroughly coat. Set aside.
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
Place the chicken wings on the prepared baking pan and bake for 15 minutes.
You do not want the wings to touch! Use a second baking sheet if needed.
Remove from the oven and turn the wings over using tongs.
Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Flip wings a second time and place under the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes to brown and crisp up the skin.
Serve with lots of napkins!!
Some stores sell bags of drumettes and/or wings that have already been separated. This is a time saver if you can find them.
Chili powder is not spicy, cayenne pepper is. Start with a small amount and add more based on your personal tastes.
Serving size is based on 4 pieces per person. 3 pounds of chicken wings can vary between 13 to 30. It all depends on the size of the individual wings that are included in the package.
3 carbs - 1 fiber = 2 net carbs per serving.
