Caribbean Chicken Wings

Caribbean Chicken Wings

I stumbled onto this wing recipe on A New York Foodie right before Super Bowl Sunday.  Wings were on the menu, but I hadn’t decided how I wanted to cook them yet.  I loved the flavorful list of ingredients that went into the marinade.  Don’t be intimidated by the length of the list…what’s great about marinades is you do most of the work ahead of time, then the marinade does rest of the work while you go on with your day.  I let the wings sit in the marinade in the fridge for about 8 hours.  They baked up nicely and we enjoyed them alongside some crunchy veggies for dinner.

Caribbean Chicken Wings


  • 1 habanero, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seed
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons allspice
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 7 pounds chicken wings


  1. In a food processor, blend together all the ingredients but the chicken until smooth. Reserve 1 cup of marinade. Place chicken wings into a large resealable plastic bag and pour remaining marinade over them. Seal and marinate in the refrigerator 4 to 6 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 sheet trays with parchment. Remove chicken from bag and place on the baking sheets. Bake 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan bring reserved marinade to a boil. Reduce by 1/3 until it thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove chicken from oven. Brush chicken with the glaze. Raise the heat to 400 degrees F and cook chicken until cooked through, another 20 minutes.

    I had come by and saw this recipe and just had to try it for lunch time. It turned out fab and was so delish!!! The boyfriend, he was a bit skeptical on the spicy factor, but it was really good. If it were my choice, I would have added more…lol. I like my food HOT!

    Thank you for a new recipe!

    By the way, I work as a virtual assistant of The Healthy Moms ( ), the site is fairly new and I thought I would drop by some mom related sites to spread the word.

    Your pictures are drool worthy! This looks like a great recipe!

    Oooh I love that top picture and I think my brother would die for a batch of these- I’ll have to try them!

    Oh this looks yum. Wish I had some right now. My kids have just fallen in love with chicken wings over the past year and I like being able to cook a healthier version at home – plus they’re usually so much better. Can’t wait to try this version.

    I will have to show these to Josh:)

  18. Julie posted February 23, 2010 at 12:04 am

    Those pics seriously made my mouth water! Very nice 🙂

    thanks for the mention Aggie. :o) Your wings look great. I have another wing recipe that I will be trying soon.

    Going to have to give the marinade a try. I like my food hot too!

  21. Betsy posted February 6, 2011 at 8:37 am

    I want to make some wings today and this looks great. Do you think the kiddos would eat these or too much “flavor” for them?

  22. Katherine K. posted December 18, 2011 at 10:38 am

    The “Caribbean Chicken Wings” look yummy. It makes me hungry.
    Too bad I only have 2 turkey wings at home and no chicken wing!, I guess I might just want to use my turkey wings instead of chicken wings this time : )
