Guy Fieri's Tequila Lime Wings from Food Network


  • 1 pound of chicken wings, cut into segments, tips removed and discarded
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper

Tequila Lime Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Season the wings with salt and pepper. Arrange the chicken wings on a baking sheet in a single layer. Put in the preheated oven and cook for 45 minutes.

3. Remove the wings from the oven to a bowl and allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate until ready to finish on your barbecue.

4. For the sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a resealable gallon-size plastic bag and combine well.

5. When ready, preheat a grill to 350 degrees F, prepared for indirect heat. Add all the wings and cook for 10 to 15 minutes to reheat and get some grill marks, turning after 7 minutes. Remove the wings from the grill to a serving bowl. Add the sauce and toss to combine.
