Ready in 1 hour 30 minutes
More than just an insulting heat, these wings have a complex layer of flavors and a building intensity level.
Make a marinade with coriander, cumin, salt, and oil. Marinade wings for 4 hours in a ziploc bag.
Over very low heat, melt butter and whisk with basil, lime zest, sriracha sauce, and garlic.
Get your Big Green Egg or grill up to 350f on indirect heat and cook for 30 minutes. Flip chicken.
Cook another 20 minutes and toss in the sauce.
Cook 10 more minutes, to crisp up the sauce. Serve with the usual suspects (celery & blue cheese or ranch).
First made 11/13/09. I loved them.
brianmcdonald 2y agoAmazing. Huge crowd pleaser
brianmcdonald 3y agoMy new favorite hot wings. I substituted cilantro for the basil though.
hellochan 3y agocall me crazy but once the sriracha was mixed with the butter and cooked garlic these were nearly as spicy as one would think. If I do these again, ill definitely reduce the amount of butter.
Stormfairyjenn 3y agosurprised at just how good it was
Ninja057 4y agoCame out a bit different when pan cooking chicken, color wise, not as spicy as you might think.
Fudy 5y agoSome of us don't like cumin so I simply brined the wings first for 30 minutes instead of the marinade in this recipe. I then put it on the gas grill over low heat for 20 minutes, then dunked the wings in the sauce, threw it back on the grill for another 5-10 minutes on medium heat. Yum!
Mok1031 5y agoCan i bake this instead of grill??
swibirun 5y agoYes, I do indirect the last 10 minutes, mainly because I am using a big green egg and don't want to bother to take the plate setter out to switch to direct heat. You can burn oven mitts up that way ;) But you are right, finishing over direct heat would work very well for a more crispy wing.
cwedding 5y agoWe had these wings while watching UFC Saturday night. These were awesome! The only question I had was during the last 10 minutes when you cook after you coat in the sauce, do you continue to cook over indirect heat?
Malcolm91 5y agoBrilliant, the flavor is very original, I felt like I was trying chicken wings again for the first time.
