Cilantro Lime Chicken Wings

Cilantro Lime Chicken Wings - Family Fresh Meal Recipe

There are some flavors that just go together like they’re made for each other. Like chocolate and peppermint, which totally makes holiday desserts like these brownie bites. Or honey and garlic, which make a delicious sauce for everything from meatballs to shrimp lo mein.

Cilantro and lime is one of those magical mixtures. It’s the flavor combo that makes Chipotle’s Cilantro Lime Rice into a work of art. There’s something about the pairing of the tart lime and the unique, herbal, almost musky taste of the cilantro that’s much more than the sum of its parts.

Here’s a new, easy way to put this zesty flavor combination on your table: Cilantro Lime Chicken Wings.
