"Spicy, citrus, earthy, with the right amount of thyme. These wings should be a hit as long as your guests are brave enough to take some Caribbean heat. I like to serve this with a mango, cilantro, sour cream, mayonnaise, and buttermilk dipping sauce.

chopped fresh ginger
habanero pepper, seeded and chopped (use gloves)
large chicken wings, tips removed and wings cut apart at joint
Tasty! I used ground ginger instead of fresh ginger and used a jalapeno pepper instead of habanero. The 1/2 cup of oil is a little much, so I reduced it to 1/4 cup. The recipe makes alot of marinade for 12 wings, so I doubled the amount of wings. Lastly, I baked mine at 375 for 20-25 mins without basting. Turned on the broiler to crisp it up for a few mins and perfection!
The flavor of this is delicious! I used it on pieces of chicken breast instead of wings, and I couldn't go out to grill so I baked them in the oven in the marinade (@ 375 for about 25 minutes). I've never cooked with habaneros before, so I didn't know how hot this was going to be, but it was a perfect level of spiciness for me - a good moderate amount of heat. I will definitely keep making this. Thanks, BencyCooks!
This is by far my favorite wing recipe. So good. Perfect amount of heat. My bf who loves traditional buffalo wings couldn't decide which he liked better. I will be making these often. Next time I'm going to try chicken breats like the other reviewer. Amazing! Can't get enough!
Wonderful! I really enjoyed the blend of spices in the dish. Nothing was overpowering. I admit I did not include the habanero pepper to make it more tolerable for those that couldn't handle the heat, but I'm looking forward to making this spicier next time. Thanks!
Brought these to a bbq last night and everybody loved them. I marinated them for more like 24 hours and didn't have a habanero so I added some habanero hot sauce. Instead of whisking the oil into the juice and seasonings I just dumped it all into a big mason jar and gave it a good shake, much easier. The wings were delicious and I will definately be using this marinade again and again.
They were very good, but not authentic jerk flavor. If you want real jerk flavor, get an authentic Jerk recipe or order Walkerswood Jerk Marinade. I've used it for years. It is fabulous!
We made these for New Years to go with our Caribbean themed meal. They turned out okay. Not too spicy. More like a very seasoned chicken wing. We also baked them in the oven due to the extreme temperatures in WI this time of year. I thought the wings would be dry in the oven, but the marinade bakes off and they were perfected moist with a slightly crisp skin. The sauce left in the pan went WONDERFULLY with the cilantro lime rice from this website. To get more of a kick, i may add a little more jalepeno next time (i must admit that we only used 2 jalepeno peppers without the seeds due to us have small kids around). Overall, very tasty.
I loved the chicken this recipe is a keeper...I didn't have fresh ginger or thyme, but i did have ground so I used that..
