Mouthwatering, juicy Chili Lime Chicken Wings. Make in the Instant Pot or in the oven. SO GOOD!
Mix all marinade ingredients (chili powder, garlic powder, garlic, honey, oil, lime zest, lime juice, and salt) together in a large ziplock bag or a large glass bowl/container. Add chicken wings and toss until well coated. Seal or cover well and let sit for 1 to 24 hrs.
Place 1/2 cup of water at the bottom of the Instant Pot and top with the trivet. Place wings on top of trivet. Close lid and seal valve. Cook at HIGH pressure for 4 minutes. Carefully use the quick release valve and remove lid when pressure has been released.
Continue with Chili Lime Glaze instructions and broil wings for crispiness (as directed below).
Complete step one above. Preheat oven to 400° F and line a baking tray (or 2) with foil.
Remove chicken wings from marinade and place on a foil lined tray. Brush glaze (instructions below) onto wings and cook for 45-50 minutes.
Mix glaze together in a small bowl (chili powder, garlic powder, honey, lime juice, lime zest, and salt).
Preheat oven to broil high and move oven rack to 4-6" away from broiler.
Place chicken wings on a foil lined baking tray** and brush glaze on. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until chicken wings are starting to brown and crisp.
* chili powder is quite mild in Canada. If you're not into spice and live else with spicier chili powder adjust accordingly starting with 1 tsp.
** you might need 2 baking trays. I only needed one, however the wings should be nicely spaced apart so they don't end up steaming each other vs baking.
