Tangy, sweet chicken wings are tossed with a homemade Cuban sazon completa spice blend and then glazed with a homemade guava bbq sauce. Whether you bake, air fry, or grill these guava bbq chicken wings until crispy perfection, they will always be a hit!
In a large bowl, add chicken wings and the mojo marinade. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour up to overnight.
Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Place 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 sazon completa to the bowl. Toss the wings until they are evenly coated.
Lay 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 165ºF.
Once the wings are fully cooked, remove them from the oven. Brush guava bbq sauce on the wings. Place back in the oven and bake until glaze is glossy and lightly caramelized about 5 minutes. Enjoy!
To make guava bbq chicken wings in the air fryer:Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place the chicken wings in the basket and set the air fryer to 360ºF. Cook for 12 minutes, then flip the wings and then cook for another 12 minutes. Flip them over again, brush them with the guava bbq sauce and increase the heat to 390ºF and cook until crispy about 5-6 minutes.To make guava bbq chicken wings on the grill:Preheat a grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grill grates to keep the chicken wings from sticking. Place the wings on the grill in a single layer and cook over direct heat for 20 minutes, turning every 5-10 minutes or so, until an internal temperature of 165ºF is reached.
