Have to give credit to hubby for this one, he just takes it to the next level... and they are SOOOO GOOD!!!
Fresh or frozen chicken wings and/or drumettes - we get the large family size bag - thaw completely before cooking
In a large bowl, mix together the following ingredients
1/2 c. olive oil
2 limes, juiced and zested
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 T. smoked paprika
1 tsp. sugar
Kosher salt and crushed black pepper
Additional sauce, if desired...
Buffalo (mild or hot)
Sauteed garlic w/butter or olive oil
Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing
Place marinade and chicken wings in sealed container, toss to coat wings evenly, place in fridge overnight. Remove wings from container when ready to cook. Place on broiler pan or baking sheet with rack. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until almost done.
Remove wings from oven and deep fry in hot oil (350) for 2 minutes or until crispy. Drain wings on paper towels, sprinkle with Kosher salt, then place in large bowl and toss with favorite sauce. Serve wings with dressing on the side.
Note: This marinade is so good, you can even skip the extra sauce. However, the wings are really wonderful with both!
