Why Wrap these Chile Lime Wings in Reynolds Wrap®?
Having super flavorful and delicious wings is really easy. Some people think that it is overly complicated to get juicy wings, but the secret is to marinate, bake & sear them. First, by marinating your wings you are encapsulating all that juiciness inside so that it is covered in flavor. I prefer to marinate my wings overnight, but for those that don’t have 12 hours, 5 hours is pretty good.
Next, I like to wrap my wings in Reynold Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil, it’s extra strength makes it durable for the grill, making it less likely to rip or tear. This process will not allow the juices to leave the wings, so you end up with super tender and delicious wings. They practically fall off the bone at the end. The other nice part is that they are a no-fail cooking time. Finally, we will toss these wings in the Chile Lime Sauce and sear them off.
Let’s Talk About this Chile Lime Sauce!
One of my favorite parts of this recipe is the Chile Lime Sauce. It is the finishing touch to an already amazing meal. Simmered over the fire, this Chile Lime Sauce is spicy with a nice citrus tang from the lime juice. I highly recommend making this while cooking, but you can easily plan ahead and make it the night before.
Toss the baked wings in the sauce right before they are seared off over the fire. You end up with a tender but crispy wing all at the same time. The perfect combo.
