Baked Garlic & Lime Wings

Baked Garlic & Lime Wings

I was having some company over for the Super Bowl and I got a request to make chicken wings with my Spicy, Sweet & Sour sauce. Sure, no problem, I was more than happy to accommodate that… but if I was making wings I couldn’t just do one type! So I decided to make a second batch with a preparation I used to do years ago, Garlic & Lime Wings.

Serves 2-4 as a snack.

2 1/2lbs Chicken Wings, separated at the joint with the tips discarded
1/3c Olive Oil
1/3c Lime Juice
1tbsp Minced Garlic
2tsp Salt
2tsp Garlic Powder
1tsp Ground Black Pepper

It really doesn’t get much easier than this… Simply combine all of the ingredients in a sealable plastic bag and toss until the chicken is evenly coated. Marinade in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, and up to 24 hours. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes prior to baking and keep at room temperature. This will allow the oil to loosen back up.

Heat your oven to 375F.

Lightly grease a baking sheet or 9×13″ baking dish. Bake the chicken until lightly browned, 40-45 minutes, turning halfway through to prevent burning.

I have spent my entire adult life surrounded by fine food and fine wines, starting with fifteen years working at, or running, some of New Jersey's top restaurants, and now the last two years working for one of the top fine wine distributors in the United States. I have absorbed a ton of information on food, wine, pairings and techniques during those seventeen years, and I'd love to share what I've learned with you!
