Chile-Rubbed Wings

IngredientsScreen Shot 2016-02-08 at 9.18.04 AM.png

  • Vegetable oil, for greasing
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 pounds chicken wings, split at the joint, tips removed

Directions

Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and lightly oil. Mix the chile powder, cumin, coriander, cloves, 2 teaspoons salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add the wings and toss to coat.

Spread the wings, spaced apart, on the prepared baking sheets. Bake, turning once, until browned and crisp, about 40 minutes.

Hot: Ancho chile powder gives these a slightly smoky kick; serious wing lovers will want to step up the heat.

Hotter: Put 2 jalapenos, 1/2 cup cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, the juice of 1 lime and 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a food processor and finely chop. Toss with the wings; marinate 2 hours. Brush off the marinade and rub and bake as directed, omitting the black pepper.

Hottest: Marinate the wings in the jalapeno mixture (see above), then rub and bake as directed. About 5 minutes before they’re finished baking, brush with a mixture of 3 tablespoons each honey and Sriracha sauce (hot Asian chili sauce).
