  • 1 pound chicken wings, cut into segments, tips removed and discarded
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper, freshly cracked
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup tequila, blanco or reposado
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepper, freshly cracked
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt



Step 1

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.

Meanwhile, add all ingredients for Tequila Lime Sauce to a saucepan and cook until slightly thick, about 8 minutes (you can do this on the grill as well). Keep warm.

Heat a grill to high heat.

Grill the wings until marked, 10 to 15 minutes, turning as needed.

Drizzle the wings with the sauce and top with cilantro, if desired.

Serve immediately.
