We made it to FOODIE FRIDAY, folks! This deserves a celebration!
And what better way to celebrate than by sharing one of the foods that I am blissfully in LOVE with… and think you might be too: WINGS.
Aww yeah . . . chicken wings. I could eat a dozen wings at least once a week and be so very happy.
In preparation for the big snow storm a couple of weeks ago, I threw a 2.5 pound bag of chicken wings into our shopping cart during our Survival Grocery Store Run. I had planned on making either my mom’s classic teriyaki chicken, or the sweet & sour chicken wings recipe we’ve made in the past for parties (wings are GREAT to make when you have to entertain a large crowd!). But staring into our refrigerator on Day 4 of being snowed in, inspiration struck: we had cilantro, limes, and fresh garlic. Why not use them with the wings?
Thus, Cilantro Lime Asian Chicken Wings were born.
The ingredients come together quickly: teriyaki sauce (I am a devotee of Yoshida’s Original Teriyaki Sauce), chopped garlic, ginger, cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper.
It’s just the marinating that takes some time. We marinated ours for four hours, but based on past chicken wing experience (and if you can’t tell, I have some experience making wings!), you can marinate the chicken anywhere from just two hours to overnight. The longer you marinate, the more flavorful your wings will be!
Then you bake the chicken wings at 425 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
I like to serve most Asian wings we make with a side of brown rice and steamed veggies.
Do you love wings as much as I do? You will LOVE this delicious wings recipe! I can’t wait for you to try it and let me know what you think!
