Spicy Chipotle Chicken Wings & NFL Super Bowl XLV Party Snacks

I’m looking forward to the NFL Super Bowl XLV this weekend. To many sports fans, including myself, enjoying any major sporting event is all about having some good food, drinks, and great company. Cheering for your team with near zero disruptions, however, requires you to prepare as much as possible ahead. So, I have rounded up some simple and yet delicious snacks recipes here that you can cook-up beforehand to serve this Sunday. I also highly recommend you consider making these Spicy Chipotle Chicken Wings. The chicken wings are spicy, sweet, sticky, and finger licking good. Yum! Have a Super Sunday all, hope your team win! For those that are not football fans, I hope you will try making these snacks anyway. Enjoy!

Spicy Chipotle Chicken Wings


16 – 18 Chicken Wings (about 1.2 kg) tips removed
Lime Wedges

2 Tbsp (21 g) Chipotle Rub Mix
4 Tbsp Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
½ tsp Garlic Powder
1 ¼ tsp Sea Salt
2 Tbsp Pounded Roasted Peanuts
2 ½ Tbsp Hazelnut or Peanut Oil


In a medium bowl, whisk together the Chipotle rub mix, lime juice, brown sugar, garlic powder, sea salt, peanuts, and hazelnut or peanut oil. Marinate the chicken pieces for about 3 hours, or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 425˚F/220˚C.

Line a large baking pan with parchment paper. Arrange the chicken pieces in the pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Then set the oven on broil and bake the chicken for another 3 to 5 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. Serve warm with some lime wedges.
