This barbecue maple lime chicken wing recipe will be your go-to cheat day treat this summer. With the perfect flavour combination of spicy and sweet with a zing of lime to round it off, there’s no doubt you’ll want to make these time and time again.
Don’t worry – it’s still high in protein!
Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C for fan-assisted.
In a bowl, mix together the garlic, maple syrup, lime zest and half the juice, coconut oil, pepper sauce and barbecue sauce.
Coat the chicken wings and set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes (for best taste, leave to marinade overnight).
Once marinated, pick the wings out of the sauce and spread them out onto a baking tray (don’t throw the sauce away!).
Bake for 25 minutes, drain, then add the remaining marinade and bake for a further 20 minutes.
Increase the temperature by 20°C, spoon the remaining marinade over the wings and bake for a further 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven, squeeze the remaining lime juice over the wings and serve hot!
