Because this Chili Lime Baked Chicken Wings recipe has honey in it, you will need to flip the wings a couple times, so they don’t burn on one side or stick to the bottom.

The honey gives the wings their gorgeous caramelized color and balances out the tang from the lime zest.

Easy 7-Ingredient Chili Lime Baked Chicken Wings Recipe. Big on flavor, yet quick to make! This simple oven chicken wings recipe is rich and tangy.


  • 3 pounds trimmed chicken wings and/or drumettes
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 limes, zested


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Place the chicken wings in a large bowl and pour the honey, oil, chili powder, salt, garlic powder, and lime zest over the chicken. Toss and massage until each piece until completely coated. Then lay the chicken out on the baking sheet in a single layer. Make sure the pieces don’t touch.
  3. Bake the chicken wings for 15 minutes. Flip the chicken and bake another 15 minutes. Rotate the chicken one last time and bake another 5-10 minutes until crispy and dark. (The rotating helps the chicken not to burn on one side.) Serve warm!

    I made this and, to be honest, I simply forgot to add the zest/missed it in the receipe. They came out delicious just as the receipe dictates, minus the zest. Next time I make them, though, I’ll include the zest!
