  • Active Time 25m
  • Total Time 1h 45m

Serves 2 as an appetizer

Spicy and sweet, these little delicacies are best served on a platter and eaten with your hands. If you are serving them as party hors d'oeuvres, make plenty of them and have the napkins close by.


  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 3 jalapeno chiles, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 pounds chicken wings and drumettes


Combine the lime juice, garlic, ginger and chiles in a glass or non-reactive metal bowl. Add the chicken and turn to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours, turning occasionally. Remove from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Preheat a grill pan over medium heat until very hot. Add the chicken and grill for about 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked through and firm. Serve immediately.
