This recipe for baked wings with a citrus spice rub is a great healthy way to serve your friends on any occasion with all of the flavor and no extra fat.
I can’t believe I’ve never made chicken wings before. They are really easy to make and the possibilities for flavor combinations seem endless. These are baked wings with a spice rub, so no extra fat needed. Tasty, and a great healthy alternative to serve at any party.
Start with some of your favorite spices and add lots of lime and lemon juice and zest.
Using a foil lined cookie sheet helps with the mess. Make sure you turn them about every 10 minutes or they may start to stick to the foil.
Serve them with any dressing you like. These were served with my homemade blue cheese dip a traditional accompaniment to wings, made from scratch.
