Ingredients
  • For the Wings:
  • 3 pounds chicken wings, split at the joint, tips removed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • For the Sauce:
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • (sometimes called agave nectar)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish (optional)
Directions

Prepare the wings: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Season the wings with salt and pepper and arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Cook until just brown and crisp, about 45 minutes.

Make the sauce: Combine the lime zest and juice, tequila, agave syrup, cumin, adobo sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 tablespoon pepper in a bowl. Pour over the warm wings and let marinate at least 30 minutes.

Preheat a grill to high. Grill the wings until marked, 10 to 15 minutes, turning as needed. Transfer the marinade to a saucepan and cook until slightly thick, about 8 minutes (you can do this on the grill as well). Drizzle the wings with the sauce and top with cilantro, if desired.
