Cilantro Vinaigrette Chicken Wings (W30, Keto)

Cilantro Vinaigrette Chicken Wings

These Cilantro Vinaigrette Chicken Wings are bursting with flavor. In addition, they are perfect for your Super Bowl Party or family dinner. This recipe is not only a crowd pleaser, but it is also Whole30, Paleo and Keto compliant.

Cilantro Vinaigrette Chicken Wings

I came up with this recipes because I was tired of the traditional Buffalo Chicken Wing, and wanted to branch out. My husband request these monthly and will even take leftovers for lunch the next day.

Cilantro Vinaigrette Dressing

How to make these Cilantro Chicken Wings:

  • To begin, I will preheat the oven to 425F.
  • Next, I prepare the wings by patting each one dry. This will allow the wings to get crispy in the oven.
  • Once the wings are dry, I will begin making my cilantro vinaigrette by adding all of my ingredients to my Vitmaix or Food Processor and blending until smooth.
  • After the vinaigrette is ready, I will transfer the wings to a large mixing bowl and pour half the vinaigrette dressing over the wings and toss until coated.
  • Next, I add a wired rack on a baking sheet and place each wing on the rack.
  • Then, I transfer the wings to the oven and cook for 15 minutes and then turn the wings and cook another 15-20 minutes.
  • Finally, I remove the wings and toss in the extra dressing and serve.

Methods of cooking these wings:

I love making these wings in the oven, but there are certainly other ways you can cook them. If I am not making a big batch, I love using my air fryer to get an extra crisp. You can even pan fry if you want an even crisper skin.

Cilantro Vinaigrette Chicken Wings

A savory and flavorful Cilantro Vinaigrette Chicken Wing. These are the perfect party snack or even a great family night dinner option. Whole30, Paleo and Keto

  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 45 servings 1x


  • 2.5 lbs Chicken Wings
  • 2 handfuls of cilantro 
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • ¾ cup light olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 425F
  2. Add a rack to a baking sheet and place all of the wings on top of the rack. (The wire rack allows the wings to get crispy all the way around). If you don’t have a wire rack, just line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place wings on top.
  3. Place the cilantro, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil and vinegar into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. 
  4. Prepare the wings by placing them on a paper towel and pat dry. Place the wings in a bowl along with half the dressing. Toss until all the wings are evenly coated.
  5. Place the coated wings on the baking sheet/wired rack and transfer to the oven and bake for for 15 minutes then remove the wings from the oven and turn them. Add back to the oven to cook for 15-20 more minutes or until crispy. 
  6. When the wings are completely done cooking, remove from the oven and add to a big Tupperware bowl that has a lid. Pour over the remaining dressing.
  7. Place the lid on the container and shake until the wings are covered. 
  8. Serve with my homemade ranch and enjoy!


  • These wings will last in the fridge up to 1 week.
  • You can also cook in the air fryer on 400F for 24 minutes, flipping halfway through.

    Made these wings for dinner last night and they were packed with flavor. I really enjoyed the dressing; it was very fresh tasting with the lemon and cilantro. I baked these and they didn’t get as crispy as I would of liked so next time would fry them. I also dusted them with almond flour as the recipe didn’t specific the mixture but it all worked out.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      There is really nothing like the freshness of cilantro is there? These wings are certainly a favorite in our house. Thanks so much for your words.

  2. Jaymey says:

    These are fantastic!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you so much for trying!

  3. Angela says:

    I loved the flavor for these! The cilantro was so nice and the lemon juice tang really made it pop. Unfortunately even with patting the wings dry before adding the sauce and baking them on a rack over my sheet pan, my wings still didn’t get any crisp to them. I think next time I may broil a bit after the cooking to get some color and crispness.

    The recipe does not specify for almond flour in the ingredients however the instructions note to toss with almond flour. I did not do so as it seemed like a typo but maybe that is why there was no crispness?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you Angela! Yes, this was absolutely a typo. These are not meant to be crispy. I have removed that. Thank you for the catch.

  4. Molly Ingram says:

    This recipe is so flavorful. I love the idea of making different flavored wings that are just the normal “buffalo.” Great recipe.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you so much, Molly.

    Mac, this recipe is perfect. It helps that you used my favorite herb of ALL TIME. I got my whole house addicted to these recipes and I’m the only one on a Whole30. I think I’ll be living off that vinaigrette forever.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thanks so much for the kind words of support Allison

  7. Lindsey says:

    I tried this recipe the other night and it was an HIT with my whole family! It was so easy to follow and the chicken was so tender and flavorful. We used the oven method. We will definitely be making this again in the near future!

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
