Key West Grilled Chicken Wings

I was throwing around wing recipe names when he dubbed them as Key West Grilled Chicken Wings because the flavors remind him of Key West. So… I went with it.

  • 1.5 lbs chicken wings and drums
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro minced
  • 1 lime zest
  • 1-½ limes juiced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 dried chili pepper minced
  • 2 tablespoon honey + additional for drizzling over wings
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • In a large bowl combine minced cilantro, zest of 1 lime, juice from 1-½ limes, minced garlic, ¼ teaspoon cumin, minced dried chili pepper, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Mix well until combined.
  • Rinse and pat dry your chicken wings and place in a gallon size sealable baggie. Then pour mixture over chicken wings. Seal the bag, toss the wings, and let the chicken wings marinade for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Clean and then wipe grill grates with oil (on a thick coated paper towel using the cleaning brush so that your hands don't get burnt)! Place the chicken wings on the grill, close the grill, and let those babies cook for 5 minutes! While the wings are cooking make ANOTHER BATCH OF MARINADE! This will be used to pour over the wings once they are done cooking and on the plate.
  • Turn your chicken wings, and lightly drizzle honey over the wings. Cook for another 5 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 165. Once the chicken wings are done place them on a plate. Pour your second batch of marinade over the wings, then drizzle additional honey on top of the wings.
