Before the blog my chicken wing world was dark. Well bright red is more like it. I thought the only kind of chicken wings were those slathered in a neon red spicy butter sauce and dunked in ranch (never blue cheese for me).

So far I have tried Sweet Thai Chili Wings, Cajun Chicken Wings, Garlic Pepper Chicken Wings and now these Spiced Chicken Wings with Chipotle Lime Dipping Sauce. With all this experimenting I think I might change my name from Des to “Chicken wing Queen.” Whaddya think?

The mixture made for a crispy wing without having to fry them, which make these quite a bit healthier than your regular fried butter sauce slathered chicken wing. Not that those aren’t good of course ;-)
Along with my chicken wing world expansion, my chicken wing dip world has also grown. While ranch might be good with these, I wanted to add a little kick so I made a quick chipotle dipping sauce. It was so good I may have dunked my finger in it a couple of times once I ran out of wings.
