Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Chicken wings marinated in lime, cilantro, and spices and baked in the oven until crispy.
Serves: 4
  • 3 pounds Chicken Wings
  • ½ medium Onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 Jalapeno Peppers, seeds removed
  • 3 Garlic cloves, peeled
  • Zest and Juice from 2 Limes
  • ½ bunch Cilantro
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  1. Put 3 pounds of wings in a big ziploc bag.
  2. Coarsely chop half an onion, de-seed 2 jalapeno peppers, pull out 3 cloves of garlic, zest and juice 2 limes, and break ½ a bunch of cilantro into smaller pieces.
  3. Combine salt and pepper, fish sauce, soy sauce and oil in a blender.
  4. Toss in your onion, jalapeno, garlic, lime zest and juice, and cilantro.
  5. Blend until it's all mixed into a smooth puree.
  6. Pour the mix over your chicken, close the bag, and squish the chicken around so each piece is coated with the marinade.
  7. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
  8. Use this time to preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  9. Line a baking sheet with foil. Remove the wings from the bag and place on a wire rack. If you don't have a wire rack, put the wings right on the foil. They won't be as crispy as if they were on a rack, but they will still taste delicious.
  10. Bake for 30 minutes.
  11. Flip them over. You can use any extra marinade to baste the wings once you've turned them over.
  12. Bake for another 30 minutes and serve.
