ChefDiva’s Spicy Chicken Wings Recipe

Chicken Wings make a favorite appetizer or meal and these easy chicken wings are a definite hit. Tangy and spicy, you’ll love my simple recipe.

These baked chicken wings are one of my favorite things to serve as an appetizer when friends drop by or even serve as a meal for my family. Since they aren’t fried, they are automatically lighter than their deep fried relatives! The marinade and sauce that I use makes for a really flavorful bite as well. Very tangy, with a kick of spice at the end, it is impossible for me to eat just one!
