These crunchy, delectable little wings are sure to have your mouth watering!
CRISPY OVEN-BAKED CHICKEN WINGS
2.5 lbs chicken wings
3 garlic cloves, grated
Juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp cayenne
salt + pepper to taste
In a large pot, bring water to boil. Add the wings and boil for 8 minutes. Strain, set the wings aside and let cool.
In a large bowl, mix the ingredients for the marinade. After the wings have cooled, add the wings to the marinade and mix well.
Let the wings marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 450F.
Lay out the chicken wings over a wire rack. Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper.
Bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, turn the wings over to bake the other side. Bake for another 10 minutes.
Take out of the oven, plate, and serve. (I garnished the plate with a sprinkling of chopped scallions.) Of course, you can toss the wings in your favorite sauce — but we loved ours just as they were.
