Ancho Chili Drumettes with Lime Cream

You can substitute ancho chilies with the more locally available siling labuyo. Turn this dish into a wrap-to-go by using chicken breast fillets and slicing them into strips after roasting. Place in the middle of a flour tortilla with lettuce and tomatoes, drizzle lime chili cream on top, wrap and run!
