Spicy Chicken Wings; Great Super Bowl Recipe Appetizers

Updated on March 16, 2013

Super Bowl Recipes

Of all the super bowl recipes I have tried this is my favorite. It tends to be a great hit with most people too. This spicy chicken wings appetizer is not only easy to make but is also inexpensive. Can be served with a side of Tabasco, blue cheese, or ranch dressing.

You will need: chef's knife, citrus juicer, grater, large plastic bag or mixing bowl, large roasting pan, rack, cutting board

Preparation time is 20 minutes, however, 2 hours are required for chilling before roasting.

Cook Time

Prep time: 2 hours 20 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 3 hours 5 min
Yields: 8 servings


  • 3 pounds chicken wings
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons cumin, ground
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ginger, grated/peeled
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt or black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • dash tabasco cauce, (optional)


  1. Remove the tips of the chicken wings by laying the wing on the cutting board. Wit a heavy knife, locate the joint between the bony tip and the main part of the wing. Cut down firmly. discard wing tips or freeze for later use in chicken broth. Rinse the chicken wings under cool water and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, oregano, paprika, ginger, salt, black pepper,chili powder, and cayenne pepper in a large, resealable plastic bag (or mixing bowl), shaking (or stirring)well to blend. Add the chicken wings; toss well to coat. Seal the bag (or cover bowl) and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the chicken wings in a single layer on a rack in a large roasting pan; roast in the oven for 40-45 minutes, or until sizzling, crispy, and browned. Turn them once after 20-25 minutes. If you want them spicier, serve the wings with Tabasco sauce on the side.


Hot chili powder is hot. I suggest you add the powder incrementally, stir well, and stand back.

      As a WNY life-long native.....I'm impressed whenever anyone tackles chicken wings!! Once you have 5 minutes of reading time (as opposed to continual key tapping) I hope you'll look up my Buffalo Wings Hub....if you have an interest in the history of their origin!! Good luck. UP +
