Spiced Roasted Chicken Wings

These Spiced Roasted Chicken Wings were baked in an oven and they are really tasty! The chicken wings need to be marinated a day ahead so that the flavors of the spices will be fully absorbed. A great dish for parties because you can prepare the wings a day ahead and just bake them in your oven before your guests arrive. This recipe can also be applied for vegetables, for instance, with cauliflower and potatoes. I will post the vegan version shortly.

Spiced Roasted Chicken Wings


12 – 14 (1.4 kg) Chicken Wings, tip off
Lime Wedges

4 Tbsp Curry Powder
2 tsp Garam Masala
4 tsp Paprika or Cayenne Pepper
4 tsp Garlic Paste
2 Tbsp Ginger Paste
2 tsp Sea Salt
1 Big Lime, juiced
8 to 10 Tbsp Canola Oil
2 to 3 Sprigs Fresh Curry Leaves


Combine all the marinate ingredients and mix well. Rub the chicken with the marinate mixture, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat the oven to 400˚F/200˚C.

Bring the chicken wings to room temperature. Place the chicken wings on a large baking tray in a single layer. Bake the chicken for about 18 to 20 minutes on each side.

Heat the broiler. Place the chicken wings under the broiler, about 6 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is fully cooked and crispy. Serve the chicken wings warm with some lime wedges.
