Jalapeno Lime Grilled Chicken Marinade Recipe
This delicious grilled chicken marinade recipe combines lime, honey, jalapeño, garlic and more, for a really piquant and bold flavor. You can use chicken breasts instead of chicken wings if you like, although this recipe does especially suit wings. If you would rather broil the chicken, then just arrange the wings on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet six inches from a hot broiler and turn them once during the cooking time.
If you have a grill then that is perhaps the preferred method of cooking wings, because you will get the experience of cooking outdoors (which is always fun) and you can also use a charcoal grill to give the wings a mouthwatering smoky flavor. Perhaps you are not fond of spicy food, in which case simply reduce the amount of jalapeño, or you could even leave it out altogether to eliminate the spiciness.
You can serve these spicy wings with a cooling sauce, perhaps guacamole or garlic mayonnaise, for dipping. They are great as a party snack or you could swap the wings for chicken thighs or breast and serve them for dinner with your favorite side dishes. Larger chicken pieces will take longer to cook.
