Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups mojo marinade
  • 2 1/2 pounds chicken wings tips removed; drumettes and flats separated (approx. 20-25 wings)
  • 3 tablespoon cuban seasoning
  • Lime wedges for garnish

Instructions

  • In a bowl, add chicken wings and mojo marinade and place in the fridge for at least 20 minutes up to overnight (the longer the better). Do not marinate longer than 2 days.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.┬áPlace a wire rack inside a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spray the wire rack with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Discard marinade from the bowl. Pat the wings dry a bit with paper towels. Add cuban seasoning to the bowl. Toss the wings until they are evenly coated.┬áLay the chicken wings on the wire rack.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes or until chicken wings are cooked through and crispy. Note: Not all ovens are created equal so keep an eye on them at the 35-minute mark. If they are not yet cooked/crispy, continue to cook for 5-10 more minutes. They are ready when the internal temp is 165 degrees F.
  • Once the wings are fully cooked, remove them from the oven. Serve with your favorite wing sauce or squeeze with lime wedges, if desired. Enjoy!
