This is always a big hit at my house, especially when we have people over to watch a game on TV. The prep time includes marinating the wings.

Made this with chicken breasts, because that was what I had on hand (family member doesn't like wings), and the report I got was that it was delicious. Have been told this is a keeper. Nothing to change, easy, tasty and tangy. Love the fresh taste of cilantro.

I made this recipe the other night and my husband loved it, so I made it again for a super bowl party tonight. I left out the white rice both times and made a couple of changes to the recipe. I like my wings crispy, so I cooked them at 400 for 35-40 minutes, flipping a couple of times to brown evenly. Also, I thought the sauce really needed to stay at a medium heat for just about 35-40 for the sauce to be nice and thick. Really tasty recipe.
