Lime Chicken Wings Recipe

Its football season and serving wings for game time is a must. These lime chicken wings are perfect for a football party. These are a great change up from buffalo wings or teriyaki wings.  I would consider these wings to be some sort of a sweet and sour; with the sweetness coming from the honey and the sour from the lime. These wings are tangy, sweet and absolutely delicious. They will be gone in no time! I used a deep fryer to fry the wings but a large skillet with about 1” of oil will work as well. Best of all, they are too easy to make. You can even save time by getting pre-cut chicken wing pieces. The pre-cut wings might be a little more expensive but it can be worth it. If you are looking for a fantastic appetizer for game day, you can’t go wrong with these wings. Enjoy.

Save Recipe


  • 18 whole chicken wings (cut into pieces)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest (grated)
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 quarts vegetable oil (for frying)




  1. Heat a deep fryer to 360 degrees. In a large bowl combine lime juice, honey, lime zest, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix until smooth.
  2. Put flour in a plastic bag, add wings and shake until evenly coated.
  3.  Add wings to the deep fryer and deep fry in batches until wings are fully cooked. Drain on paper towels.
  4. If you do not have a deep fry this is also very easy in a pan. Just heat about 1” of oil in a large skillet and fry wings until fully cooked.
  5. Toss wings with the honey/lime mixture until well coated and serve.

Lime makes everything taste so fresh. Will give this a try for my next gathering.

These were so good. It was nice to have something a little different from your usual fried chicken wings.
