Lime and Red Pepper Flake Chicken Wings

I am not a huge sports fan, and thankfully neither is my husband! I can’t sit through games. In our house politics is what has us yelling at the television and calling the players idiots. That doesn’t mean that we don’t enjoy game day foods like chicken wings. I for one am a huge fan of spicy buffalo wings, but they aren’t huge on my husbands list of favorite things to eat. So if I want them, I have have to invent ways to indulge my craving and make them palatable for him. This recipe does just that. The tang of the lime, matched with the spice of the red pepper flake, make for a tasty and satisfying wing!
