Guy Fieri's Tequila-Lime Wings

Guy Fieri's Tequila-Lime Wings created by Julie Bs Hive

Guy Fieri, a huge Oakland Raiders fan, designed these wings to be tailgate-friendly: You can bake them at home, pack them in the boozy marinade and grill them once you get to the parking lot. This recipe is from the January/February 2010 Food Network Magazine.

ingredients

  • For the wings

  • 3 lbs chicken wings, split at the joint, tips removed
  • kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • For the sauce

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 12 cup fresh lime juice
  • 14 cup tequila
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup (sometimes called agave nectar)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper

directions

  • Prepare the wings: Preheat the oven to 350°F Season the wings with salt and pepper and arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Cook until just brown and crisp, about 45 minutes.
  • Make the sauce: Combine the lime zest and juice, tequila, agave syrup, cumin, adobo sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 tablespoon pepper in a bowl. Pour over the warm wings and let marinate at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat grill to high. Grill the wings until marked, 10 to 15 minutes, turning as needed. Transfer the marinade to a saucepan and cook until slightly thick, about 8 minutes (you can do this on the grill as well). Drizzle the wings with the sauce.

    These were very good but I had to make two changes. First I used 1/4 cup fresh lime juice and 1/4 cup bottled; and second I had to substitute honey for the agave as none could be found in my area. Still, with these substitutions made, the wings rate a good 5 stars. I served them with fiesta beans and big chunks of homemade cornbread (not to mention a good Mexican beer). Made for RS#41
