Dinner for Two: Sweet Chili Lime Chicken Wings

Who’s up for another round of dinner for two?

Dinner for two is a new series I’m writing to give you, my readers, more ideas on meals for two people.

For our second round of dinner for two, I have some chicken wings on the blog.

You can buy frozen flavored chicken wings, but why do that when you can make your own sauce.

I have started making my own sauce for chicken wings this past year. Some of my favorites are sweet chili lime, Asian zing, Parmesan garlic, and buffalo.

Today, I’ll be sharing with you my sweet chili lime chicken wings. These wings are perfect paired with celery and carrots for dinner with your significant other. You can also make the sweet chili lime chicken wings as an appetizer paired with chips and salsa/guacamole and/or other snacks.

Below is my recipe for sweet chili lime chicken wings.

Sweet Chili Lime Chicken Wings

Serving size: 2


  • 12-16 wings
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 TBSP lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • drizzle honey
  • 1/4 cup peanut, chopped
  • 1/2 TBSP flour


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Bake chicken wings 25-35 minutes (thawed) or 35-45 minutes (frozen) or until wings are cooked.
  3. 10 minutes before wings are done, start making sauce in a large saucepan.
  4. Add sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, garlic, lime juice, ginger, honey, and peanuts to saucepan; cook until it starts to bubble.
  5. Add flour if needed to thicken sauce.
  6. Once wings are cooked, add to sauce and mix.
  7. Serve wings as an appetizer or with a side such as celery and carrots.

  1. ooooo this looks fantastic…..our entire house loves Chili Lime flavored anything! Although I would probably skip on the peanuts since we have a peanut allergy in our household

  2. These sound great! I tend to skip past posts like this because I’m cooking for five, but this would be easy to scale up for the family. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. I’ve actually never made wings, but I love homemade sauces. I think my husband would love this recipe!

  4. Oh my goodness I love wings and these look so delish. I just got an air fryer so I’ll have to try my hand at some wings (I usually don’t make them myself) and this would be a fab recipe to start with- thanks for sharing lovely! ❤ Jamie

  5. I love recipes for just two, because sometimes the kids don’t what we want or they are at their activities and eat dinner super early.
