Fajita Chicken Wings - a southwestern twist on hot wings with a bite of lime. Whole 30 appetizer that also makes a great paleo dinner recipe.

I love these chicken wings (or should I say drumettes?). They have a mild kick with a little bit of lime that comes in and saves you. They’re a great appetizer year-round.

We eat chicken 5-6 nights a week, and it’s usually chicken breast. It’s nice to switch it up every so often and do a family favorite – chicken wings. I actually used chicken drumettes in this recipe because it’s not often that my store has wings, but the idea is the same.

Made by a chicken farmer

This past year I have been a brand ambassador for Chicken Farmers of Canada. This is not a brand ambassador post, but I do want to touch on that it’s so important that, as Canadians, we look for the Raised by a Canadian Farmer logo. When you buy Canadian Chicken, you are supporting our neighboring farmers and contributing to our economy (it sustains over 78,000 jobs). Canadian Chicken Farmers have strict rules over animal care and safety, and Canadian chicken has no added hormones. Learn how Canadian Chicken is good for Canadians.
