Game Day Snacks – Chili Cilantro Lime Wings

I have a huge back log of recipes I need to post.  I fear one may be gone forever because I’ve forgotten what I put in it.  But I’ll slowly get through them all and post them for your enjoyment.  These are the wings I made for Super Bowl Sunday.  While my Broncos didn’t do so well these wings were a huge hit!

Chili Cilantro Lime Marinade

1 tsp Black Pepper

1 tsp Sea Salt

1 tsp Chili Powder

1 tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 tsp Ground Cumin

1/2 cup lime juice

1 handful fresh cilantro

1 clove garlic, smashed

2 tsp olive oil

3-4 pounds chicken wings

 Line a pan with some aluminum foil, lightly salt your chicken pieces, and then broil them for about 4 to 6 minutes on each side, or until the skin is brown and crispy.  Mix all of your spices together in a small bowl and lightly dust on your browned chicken wings.  Add lime juice, cilantro, garlic and olive oil to a blender and blend until smooth.  Place seasoned chicken wings into a plastic bag and pour in the marinade.  Make sure the wings are evenly coated then let sit in the refrigerator overnight.  Place marinated wings in a slow cooker and cook on low for four hours.

I took these to a party at a friend’s house.  I only made a half batch since there were four of us but I should have made the whole thing because they were gone in minutes!  Sadly football is over but I feel like wings are good at any sporting event. These are a great choice.  Happy cooking!
