Buffalo Chicken Wings with Cilantro Lime Sauce

Makes 18 wings


For wings
3 lb chicken wings
1/2 cup honey and
1/2 cup ketchup tomato
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Tabasco to taste

For cilantro lime sauce
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 lime, juiced and zested
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 clove minced garlic


For wings

Combine honey, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and Tabasco. Add wings and toss to coat well.

Refrigerate overnight.

Place wings on a barbecue grill; grill over medium high heat 10 to 15 minutes, turning often and basting with reserved marinade, until wings are cooked.

For super saucy wings, reserve or make extra marinade, reduce on low heat on stove top and toss wings again once they are off the grill.

For cilantro lime sauce

Combine 1 cup of Greek yogurt with 1 lime juiced and zested, 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro and 1 clove of minced garlic.

Place in refrigerator for one hour before serving.
