These jerk chicken wings were so flavorful, so different, and so additively delicious, that I may have eaten my last Buffalo wing. Okay, I didn't mean that, but these really are amazing; a perfect balance of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy. I'm usually pretty casual about you changing my recipes, but I'm going to have to insist you not change any of the key ingredients, which are, every one of them.

Instructions Checklist

  • Place chicken in a large bowl. Pour marinade over chicken and toss to coat completely. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

  • Place chicken drumettes on prepared baking sheet and reserve marinade left in the bowl.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.

  • Brush 1/2 the reserved marinade onto chicken and turn wings over. Bake for 15 minutes.

  • Turn chicken and brush on remaining 1/2 the reserved marinade. Bake until tender and caramelized, 10 to 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Rest wings on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a serving platter.

Cook's Note:

You can marinate the wings for 2 hours at room temperature, turning every 15 minutes, instead of marinating in the refrigerator overnight.
