With summer in full force, we’re grilling everything, including chicken wings. In this recipe, we marinate the chicken with honey, minced jalapeños and lime zest for a sticky wing that has the perfect kick of spice with just a little bit of sweetness.

If you’re a real spice fanatic, try using hot honey instead of regular to give your wings even more kick.
