Crispy Lime and Cilantro Chicken Wings with Siracha

Recipe Courtesy of Michael Symon
Serves 4
  • 3 # chicken wings
  • 4 c(1 qt) duck fat
  • ½ c picked cilantro leaves


  • 1 T kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 T smoked paprika
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • ½ c Extra virgin olive oil

Wing Sauce:

  • ½ c siracha
  • 1 T apple cider vinegar
  • 2 T honey, plus more if desired
  • 3 T unsalted butter
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ tsp. salt
  1. Combine the kosher salt, sugar, paprika, lime juice, and extra virgin olive oil. Add the chicken wings and toss to coat. Place the wings in a gallon sized bag and marinate for 1-2 hours.

  2. Place a cast iron pan over medium high heat and add 4 c of duck fat. Using a deep fry thermometer to monitor the temperature, allow the fat to heat to 320 degrees.

  3. Preheat your oven to 350. After the wings have marinated, spread them out on a baking tray, with any liquid remaining from the marinade, and bake for 15-20 minutes until just about cooked through. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.

  4. In the meantime, make the wing sauce by placing a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Add all of the ingredients and whisk occasionally until the butter has melted then taste and season with salt, and more honey if desired. Set aside until ready to use.

  5. When your fat is hot, add the wings, deep frying until golden and crispy. Remove them onto some paper towels and season them with salt. Place them in a bowl; pour the sauce over the top, then mix to evenly coat all of the wings. Add in the cilantro leaves, tossing one more time. Serve with your favorite accompaniments
