Great snack/weekend food from Eat.Live.Paleo

2.5 lbs chicken wings


  • 3 garlic cloves, grated
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

In a large pot, bring water to boil.  Add the wings and boil for 8 minutes.  Strain, set the wings aside and let cool.

In a large bowl, mix the ingredients for the marinade.  After the wings have cooled, add the wings to the marinade and mix well.

Let the wings marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450F.

Lay out the chicken wings over a wire rack.  Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper.

Bake for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, turn the wings over to bake the other side.  Bake for another 10 minutes.
