You put da lime in da coconut...Last night we played around with several recipes and this one was the best in my opinion. Grilling is our preferred way of cooking wings, but these could be tossed in the oven also. - nannydeb —nannydeb
Test Kitchen Notes
This makes the best chicken wings I have ever had, and I have had a chicken wing fervor ever since visiting the Buffalo bar that claims Buffalo Wings. The coconut milk makes the wings tender, and the other ingredients blend into a flavorful finish. It was like having a tropical dance in my mouth! They cooked up really fast on a weeknight. Thanks, nannydeb. – luvcookbooks —The Editors
