Drunken Chicken Wings
Everyone loves wings and this recipe for my Drunken Chicken Wings is a delicious new way to enjoy one of America's favorite dishes. In an untraditional sort of way.
- 2 ½ pounds chicken wings tips trimmed off saved for soup.
- ⅔ cup tequila
- ½ cup fresh lime juice
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes or hotter if you like
Start by combining all the ingredients to make the marinade in a small bowl, mixing well.
Place the chicken wing sections in a large bowl or large ziplock bag, then the marinade. Mix the wings in the marinade so they all get coated.
Cover the bowl or seal the ziplock bag and refrigerate for 4-6 hours. You can marinate the wings overnight if needed. (bone-in and skin-on chicken is okay to marinate overnight)
Preheat oven to 400°.
Line a baking pan with foil.
Arrange the chicken wings in a single layer in the pan, and pour the marinade evenly over all the wings
Bake until meat is well browned and pulling away from the bone, about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Any marinade that is on the tray with the fully cooked chicken wings is safe to use since its been a subjected to a high temperature.
