Cajun Honey Lime Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

There’s wing sauce and there’s WING sauce. The Cajun honey lime sauce on these wings was so good that I’ll be using it on a lot more than ‘just’ wings. A little spice, a little sweet, and a little citrus, all in a thick but not gooey sauce that doesn’t just flow off your wings into the bottom of the basket. Finger-licking good, that’s for sure.

Cajun Honey Lime Wings

I used a fairly tame and not overpowering BBQ sauce when I made these Cajun honey lime wings. The flavors could easily be drowned out by an overly sweet smoky BBQ sauce. Just grab your run-of-the-mill regular ole BBQ sauce. Nothing fancy.

I’m a big fan of Cajun-flavored or Cajun-inspired wings. Try my Cravin’ Cajun, Cajun wings with dipping sauce, and my Cajun Bay (a fantastic mix of Cajun and Old Bay seasonings!) wings.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
