LEVEL: Intermediate
YIELD: 4 servings


For Wings

  • 5 lbs. chicken wings
  • ¼ cup cornstarch

For Sauce

  • 1 7oz can of chipotle peppers in adobo (seeds removed from chipotle peppers for mild spice)
  • 4 limes juiced, 2 zested
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 ½ tsp Worcestershire

Method of Preparation

1. Pat the chicken wings dry and place in a large mixing bowl or plastic bag. Toss with cornstarch and lay the wings out on two sheet trays. Place the trays in a refrigerator for at least two hours or up to 24 hours.

2. After wings have been refrigerated, preheat a Wolf Convection Oven to 425F on Convection.

3. Place the wings on two sheet trays sprayed with non-stick spray and lined with parchment paper, making sure wings are not touching each other.

4. Place trays of wings into the oven and cook for 40 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

5. While the wings are in oven, make the sauce. In a blender, place the chipotle peppers in adobo, Worcestershire, brown sugar, lime juice and honey, and puree until smooth. Set aside until wings are ready

6. Once wings are cooked, place in large bowl with sauce and toss until fully coated.

7. Place on serving platter with your favorite sauce and enjoy!

Chef Tip: Is the food ready but you’re not? Place covered wings in a Wolf Warming Drawer on medium heat or in the Wolf M or E-Series oven on Warm at 180F until ready to serve.
