Party Food: Bonnie's Margarita Wings.

I have a fabulous friend, named Bonnie. A few years ago she shared her recipe for delicious wings and I was floored by how simple it really was.  I leave out the cilantro because hubby doesn't like it.  And boozers can use 1 tablespoon each of triple sec and tequila instead of rice wine vinegar.  Either way you'll need to make a triple batch because they will disappear.

What I Used:

2 pounds chicken wings

1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon pepper
1 cup lime juice (2 limes)
1/4 melted butter (salted)
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pinch of white sugar
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro*

2 green onions, chopped fine for garnish

What I Did:

Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.
Line your broiler pan with parchment and bake the wings for about 20-30 minutes.
Flip halfway through and cook to an internal temp of 170 F.
Melt the butter and whisk into remaining marinade ingredients.
Toss the wings in the delicious mixture, garnish and serve.
