- Desired type of oil, for frying
- 24 fresh whole chicken wings
- 1 cup honey
- 4 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, finely chopped
- Sea salt
- 3 limes, quartered
In a Dutch oven or other large heavy pot, heat 4 inches oil to 375 degrees F over medium-high heat.
Using kitchen shears or a knife, separate the wings at the joint. Reserve the drumette, saving the wing for homemade chicken stock, if desired. Stand a drumette on its wide end and, holding the narrow bone at the top, use a paring knife to push and scrape the skin and meat downward to expose the bone and make a plump "lollipop" of chicken at the bottom. Repeat with the remaining drumettes.
