Peruvian Wings with Aji Verde

Lime, soy sauce, honey and spicy heat make an intriguing, well-balanced and sophisticated glaze for chicken wings. Take them over the top with creamy green condiment, aji verde, that is equal parts dip and sauce—and the perfect accompaniment to a platter full of wings.


Recipe Details

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. For the aji verde, combine the cilantro, serrano pepper, garlic, mayonnaise, sour cream, oil, vinegar and salt in a blender; puree. (May be made up to four days in advance and kept refrigerated.)
  3. Toss the wings with 1 tablespoon of the oil and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Arrange in a single layer on a large sheet pan. Roast until the wings are cooked through and lightly browned on top, 33-35 minutes. (May be made one day ahead and brought to room temperature before glazing.)
  4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium. Add the garlic and cook until it is lightly golden, 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce, honey, chipotle peppers, cumin, paprika, thyme and the remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring often, until the liquid has thickened enough to lightly coat the back of a spoon. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook, tossing, until the wings are well coated and heated through.
  5. Transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with the aji verde.
