Sweet N’ Spicy Habanero Chicken Wings


These aren’t your traditional, run of the mill chicken wings! Sometimes you want a good, nontraditional, flavorful wing that doesn’t have the word “buffalo” in front of it! lol These wings are spicy, sweet, tender, with just enough crisp! These are probably my favorite wings right now…im all about the sauce!

I used two main sauces ( sweet chili & habanero) for this recipe, but I also created a marinade. If you like you can use this marinade, but if you want some wings- quick, fast and in a hurry then just combine the two sauces together. Ill explain…


Prep: 5 minutes. Marinade time: 3 hours. Wings Cook Time: 2-3 hours on 350 degrees


  • chopped red onion
  • 4-5 slices of ginger
  • 1 cup of cilantro
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1lb of chicken wings
  •  2 tablespoons of fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of habanero sauceIMG_2443 IMG_2446

Combine all these ingredients including the chicken wings in a zip loc bag. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. IMG_2448 IMG_2449

Once you have nicely marinated chicken. Add them to a foiled pan with just a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to coat the pan. Take off any excess onion, cilantro,etc. from the chicken, we don’t want the herbs to burn! Once they’re in the pan, drizzle more sweet chili sauce and a few dashes of habanero.

Bake 350 degrees for 2-3 hours. Note: I baked on 350 degrees for the first 2 hours covered. Then baked on 365 for an hour uncovered to get them a little crispy. And this allows for some of the juice to cook out a little.

Once your chicken is finished. Serve and garnish with cilantro.
