Chipotle Lime Wings

"A smoky wing with medium heat. This way of preparing the wings is lower fat than deep fried and not as messy if you marinade them overnight and don't coat them in sauce again before serving. Also, if you are not able to find Tabasco Chipotle you can use any hot sauce with a little liquid smoke added. Toss them in a crock pot after they bake and they get extra tender and flavorful."

  • Remove any excess skin and fat from the wings.
  • Bake 25 minutes, or until fully cooked, at 350 on a rack to allow grease to drip off.
  • Cool completely.
  • Mix all other ingredients.
  • Coat wings or toss in sauce and marinade at least 2 hours (overnight is best).
  • Bake 15 minutes at 350 on a rack.
  • Serve as they are, out of the oven or coat them again in sauce.

    These wings were great with a big salad for dinner tonight. I really liked the chipotle flavour and probably could have used more. The only thing different from the recipe is that I had to cook the wings for quite a bit longer. Made for Best of 2011. Thanks Scott! :)

    I made these New Year's Eve for my children and we loved them! Spicy, but not too spicy, smoky goodness! This is an easy recipe with lots of flavor that will become a part of our regular easy chicken recipes. I may try this with other chicken parts and I think it would be good on ribs also. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Spicy smokey good! Thanks!


I love cooking. I guess you could say that great food is my vice. I don't think there is anything better than sitting down to a great meal that you made yourself. I have never been intimidated by the difficult recipes because I grew up learning from some great cooks, my grandmas, my aunt Jan and my mom. Every one of them had different strengths and learning from them gave me the attitude that there is not any dish that can't be made.
