Everyone loves a good chicken wing. These Baked Greek Chicken Wings with Tzatziki are a healthier alternative to the fried wings you’re used to!
Hello, everybody! As you can see, today I’m bringing you a recipe for these herby Baked Greek Chicken Wings with Tzatziki.
I’m typically a HOT HOT HOT wings kind of girl. I once at the hottest wings they offer at Buffalo Wild Wings and chugged quite a bit of beer trying to cool myself off in the process. That being said, I think that there is a time and a place for wings with no spice. It’s not very often, but sometimes.
The key to these Greek-inspired wings is a rub that consists of a boatload of dried herbs, lemon zest, garlic, and the secret ingredient… cinnamon. It’s barely there but it adds a little something that you can’t put your finger on. I just love those little nuances.
What’s your favorite wing recipe? Let me know because I’m always dying to try new ones, especially if they’re hot. Hehe.
