I love chicken wings. Who doesn’t? Chiles are a no-go for me, so I opt for the heat of ginger and a little lime. If I’m headed for a picnic or potluck, these are my default, along with a big chopped salad. I also often make these at home for movie night, and of course I save the bones for bone broth! In the marinade, I use maple syrup instead of sugar to take advantage of naturally occurring antioxidants along with zinc and manganese.
