Chile Lime Chicken Wings (Whole 30)
• medium onion, roughly chopped
• 2 jalapeno peppers (or 1 serrano pepper), ribs and seeds removed
• 3 garlic cloves, peeled
• ½ cup cilantro, tightly packed
• Freshly ground pepper
• Zest from 2 limes
• ¼ cup lime juice
• 2 tablespoons Paleo-friendly fish sauce (Red Boat)
• 2 tablespoons coconut aminos or soy sauce
• 6 pounds chicken wings and/or drumsticks
• 1-2 tablespoons melted fat of choice
• 4 limes, cut into wedges
Toss the onion, peppers, garlic, cilantro, ground pepper, lime zest and juice, fish sauce, and coconut aminos into a blender, and…blitz everything together until a bright green purée is formed.
Place the chicken wings in a large bowl, and add the marinade. Mix well with your hands.
Marinate the chicken in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 12 hours.
Take the wings out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before you intend to cook them.
Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat it to 425°F
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, and place a wire rack on top.
Then, arrange the wings on the greased wire rack, and roast ‘em for 30 minutes (flipping midway) or until the wings turn golden brown.
This marinade is AMAZING on all cuts of chicken (breasts, thighs, legs, and wings).
It’s not spicy, just deep rich flavor. So yummy!
