  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 whole limes



  • Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine. Remove 2-3 tablespoons and reserve for later.
  • Add the wings and toss to coat. Let sit in the fridge overnight or for at least 6-8 hours.
  • Heat the oven to 400F degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil (helps prevent a mess later).
  • Spread the wings on the pan in a single layer, along with the crushed garlic cloves and place in the oven.
  • Cook for 35-45 minutes, or until the wings are golden brown and bubbly. Turn them once at the halfway point, and baste with the 2-3 tablespoons of reserved marinade.
  • Remove from heat and serve hot.


  1. Marinading them for the full 6-8 hours will help give them a deep flavor.
  2. Sprinkle them with fried garlic before serving them.
  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of chili sauce to the marinade if you want to add spice to the wings.
  4. For an extra pop of freshness, drizzle them with fresh squeezed lime juice.
