I’ve made this recipe on a request ( kindly note that we do listen to all your requests and queries  We try our level best to fit them in our schedule asap. With a hope that you people won’t mind if it takes us longer than usual to post your request. )They turned out so good that I have a feeling it’ll be included in my weekly cooking plans. Ooooh yeah! They were juicy, tender and oh-so-flavorsome.

There are many different types of chicken wings recipes out there. This one is the least complicated, one bowl recipe and does not require any deep-frying. In fact these are totally oil-free. You don’t even have to use a tsp of oil in these juicy, tender and oh-so-citrusy chicken wings.

These sweet, subtly spicy chicken wings are packed with lemony flavor to remind you of all the joys and flavors of summer. Enjoy them with a glass of chilled peach juice, emmm emmm. These lemon honey sesame chicken wings are not only easy-to-make but they are also a low calorie snack, excellent for all the weight-watchers and great to nibble on while you kick the craving-to-eat-fried-chicken out of your head.

I found this recipe on an amazing blog named “taste”, you can check out their post here. I don’t like the bitter taste of lemon zest so, I didn’t add it to my recipe. You can add them if you like. Other than that I have followed their recipe to a T.
