Serves: 8 Total Time: 30 minutes


  • ½ medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers (or 1 serrano pepper), ribs and seeds removed
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • ½ cup cilantro, tightly packed
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Zest from 2 limes
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 pounds chicken wings
  • 1-2 tablespoons melted fat of choice
  • 4 limes, cut into wedges



Toss the onion, peppers, garlic, cilantro, ground pepper, lime zest and juice, fish sauce, and soy sauce into a blender, and puree.


Marinate the chicken in the fridge for at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours. Don’t marinade the wings longer than 8 hours because the acid will make the meat mushy. 


Take the wings out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before you intend to cook them.


Cook the wings over medium-hot coals (or with gas grill burners set to medium) for about 15 - 20 minutes, turning once, until the fat has rendered and the skin turns crisp and golden.
