Spicy Chicken Wings
1 lb. chicken wings (about 6 wings), cleaned, defatted, rinsed, and drained
3 Tbsp. walnut oil (if non-Paleo, you can use extra virgin olive oil instead)
2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 Tbsp. cumin
1 Tbsp. paprika
2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. salt (omit if Paleo)
Directions: Place prepped chicken wings onto a large plate and pat dry with paper towels. Diagonally slash wings with a sharp knife. Then transfer to a large resealable plastic bag, add all remaining ingredients, seal, and gently shake bag to combine. Massage chicken from outside of bag to evenly distribute spices and rub them into chicken, including the slashes and crevices. Refrigerate overnight.
To make on the grill: Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill wings for about 20 minutes total, turning once after about 10 minutes. Continue to cook until the juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Serve immediately.
To make in the oven: Bake in a 350°F preheated oven for 20 minutes, turning over chicken after the first 10 minutes to cook on both sides.
Serve hot with your favorite accompaniments and enjoy!
Yield: 6 wings, or 2 servings.
