Description

Grilled tequila lime chicken wings made with beer, tequila, fresh lime juice, cilantro, and spices. The perfect mild and tangy chicken wing.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 24 chicken wings (wingette and drumette separated)
  • 1 1/2 cups BHZ Sunny & 79° Ginned Pilsner or pilsner/pale ale + 1/4  cup tequila
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro, minced
  • 2 limes, juice squeezed, plus additional lime wedges for serving
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a lidded plastic container or large plastic zip lock bag. Let wings marinate refrigerated for 4-6 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat up the grill on medium heat. Once hot, lightly brush the grates with olive oil. Evenly disperse the wings on the grates and grill for 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally until golden brown and meat is white and fully cooked through.
  3. Season with additional salt and pepper and extra lime juice just before serving. Serve with extra lime wedges if desired.

Notes

If you don’t have access to BHZ beer, you can substitute with 1 1/2 cups light pilsner/pale ale and add a 1/4 cup of tequila.
