Every summer party or celebration needs some fabulous wings. My chili garlic chicken wings are exactly the phenomenon you’ve been looking for. It’s perfect for all your summer celebrations and it also makes for the perfect game day food. I think it’s very fitting that this is the first recipe for wings I’ve ever shared because it’s one you’re going to keep making over and over again.
Ok so let’s talk about the marinade for these wings. I recommend marinating them overnight because you will get the most flavor throughout the wings. But, if you are strapped for time, you can marinate them for 2-4 hours.
The marinade is a little sweet and a little spicy with the combination of spicy harissa sauce and coconut aminos along with other spices. You can also purchase mild harissa sauce if you are not a fan of spicy food or if you are cooking for children.
If you can’t find harissa sauce, I recommend substituting with chili garlic sauce or Sambel oelek. With that substitution, the wings may not have the same spice profile compared to using harissa sauce. But they will still be packed with flavor.
Can I prep these wings and freeze them?
Yes! Absolutely! Simply whisk the ingredients for the marinade together and transfer it into a freezer friendly ziplock bag. Add the wings and massage the bag to make sure the wings are well coated with the marinade. Close the bag and make sure you squeeze out as much air from the bag as possible. Freeze for up to 2 months.
You can thaw the chicken in the fridge overnight and then cook them.
you can cook your wings in a few different ways:
- In the air fryer at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
- In the oven 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
- Or, on a outdoor grill preheated to medium heat for 20-25 minutes (perfect during your 4th of July celebration)!
