Caribbean Chicken Wings

So we love Caribbean Jerk Chicken... Its our favorite way to marinade! but i have been wanting to find a homemade recipe for marinading. This t isn't a jerk marinade, but it is definitely Caribbean with a little sweet savory kick. Got it from Sunny Anderson from Food Network, but made my changes

- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon allspice (ground or whole, i only had whole and it worked)
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 cloves garlic (or 1/4 tsp garlic powder is what i did)
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- juice from 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons Orange Juice
- Chicken Wings (8)

Combine the soy sauce, honey, both sugars, cayenne, allspice, thyme, ginger, and garlic and mix together (it will make something like a paste). Add the vinegar, lime juice and orange juice and mix until combined. Place the wings in a large resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper (or i did it in a pyrex with aluminum foil). Remove the wings from the bag, place on the lined sheets and bake 20 minutes. Meanwhile, bring the marinade to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until reduced by one-third, about 10 minutes.

Remove the wings from the oven and brush with the glaze. Raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees F and continue to bake until the wings are cooked through, 20 more minutes.

  1. This recipe sounds so delicious with the allspice and ginger. I love chicken flavored with those "sweet" spices and the way they become caramelized. Mmmm.

I have to admit I am not the creator for most of these recipes! Most of these come from friends or the Foodnetwork, and other websites. I usually tweak it, but i get them from other sources. THANK YOU OTHER PEOPLE,but please... use them, circulate them, make them your own. Just make sure you give the credit to the right person, which isn't always me!
