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: 4-5 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 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

Instructions

  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!

Notes

  • 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.
