  1. Combine half the lime zest and juice in a large bowl with the oil, ketchup, honey and cumin. Add the chicken wings and stir well until evenly coated, then transfer to the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hrs, or overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C and line a roasting tin with nonstick baking paper. Add the wings, reserving the marinade juices, and roast for 20 mins. Carefully turn the wings and add the remaining marinade, then cook for a further 15-20 mins, until the wings are sticky and browned.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the mayonnaise with the remaining lime juice and zest, garlic and the smoked paprika. Season to taste.
  4. Cool the wings to room temperature and serve with the mayo for dipping.

Tip: If you like your chicken spicy, add a chopped red chilli to the marinade.
