Recipe by Crafty Lady 13
READY IN: 1hr 45mins
YIELD: 3 pounds


  • 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
  • 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


  • 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.
