Serving suggestion
You can garnish these wings with cilantro or spring onions.
You can make a dip out of greek yogurt, cumin powder, salt, black pepper, lemon and mint to serve with these wings to cool down the heat.

You can use any mix of spices/flavors to cook/glaze your wings in: lemon pepper, garlic parmesan, asian chile, bbq, etc. Always make sure you have enough water with the sauce to prevent the burn signal when cooking.
