Delicious golden crispy wings with a parmesan cornmeal crust.


1/3 cup Fresh lime juice
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp Tabasco
3/4 tsp Cayenne
3/4 tsp Dried oregano
3/4 tsp Ground cumin
3 garlic cloves; minced
1/2 Onion; minced
18 chicken wings; about 3lbs, split if desired
1 cup Yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup parmesan cheese; finely grated, dry

1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper; freshly ground
1 tbsp fresh parsley leaves; minced
2 large Eggs
2 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



In a large bowl whisk together the lime juice, the oil, the Tabasco, the cayenne, the oregano, the cumin, the garlic, and the onion. Add the chicken wings, stir to coat them with the marinade, and let them sit chilled for three hours.

Create an egg wash by beating the two eggs with 2 tbsp of cold water and the 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice.

In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, the Parmesan, the paprika, the salt, the black pepper, and the parsley. Remove the wings from the marinade, allow excess liquid to drip off, then dip them briefly in the egg wash before coating them with the cornmeal mixture (one at a time).

Arrange the wings in one layer on a rack and let them rest for 30 minutes.

Place the wings, skin side up, on a rack on a baking sheet or else directly on a lightly oiled baking sheet.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and bake wings for 35-45 minutes or until golden and crispy.

Transfer wings to paper towels to drain (if you didn't use a rack to drain grease while baking).

Serve the wings warm or at room temperature.

The rack helps to keep the wings from sticking and drains away grease while they bake. While coating the wings, have a bowl of water to periodically rinse your hands to keep them from becoming a clumpy mess! [I posted this recipe.]
