Step By Step  

Fresh lemon and orange add a citrusy zing to chicken wings.

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

These sweet and salty wings are so good, you'll be licking your fingers clean. 

I'm always looking for a new wing sauce, and this citrus version was a really big hit with my friends—so I knew I had to share it with you guys. Soy sauce is a perfect match for the citrus because it balances the sour and acidic flavors of the fruit with the savory, salty deep characteristics it's so well-known for. 

A bit of brown sugar and chili flake make this sauce the perfect balance of salty, sweet, savory and sour that makes any sauce great, especially on wings.
