My apologies as first of all this isn’t exactly a SUPER healthy recipe.  But seriously these are just TOO amazing not to share with you guys!  I got this recipe from my amazing Food Network app on my phone and these wings are now officially my boyfriend’s (and mine) FAVORITE recipe.  Oh yeah, and I got the official stamp of approval from our dads too (score!)

One way to make these wings A LOT healthier is to remove the skin.  That one modification will take this recipe from 10 grams of fat to roughly zero!  I also substituted Splenda in for the sugar it called for.  Mmm they were soo delish!!  I promise!  The spiciness of the habanero, the sweetness of the brown sugar mixed with the zest of lime is the perfect combination of ingredients for a sauce that is mouthwatering good!  Tip:  the longer you allow the chicken to marinate in the mixture, the better they taste!Again, sorry this recipe isn’t super light but personally I feel a little indulgence during the week is always a good thing.


Caribbean Chicken Wings

Yield: 9 servings 1x


  • 1 habanero, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 packets Stevia (or 2 Tbsp sugar)
  • 2 tsp. fennel seed
  • 2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp. allspice
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 package chicken wings (about 18 wings)


  1. In a food processor, blend together all the ingredients, but the chicken, until smooth. Reserve one cup of marinade. Place chicken wings into a large resealable plastic bag and pour remaining marinade over them. Seal and marinate in the refrigerator 4 to 6 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line two sheet trays with parchment.
  3. Remove chicken from bag and place on the baking sheets. Bake 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring reserved marinade to a boil. Reduce by 1/3 until it thickens slightly, about 10 minutes.
  5. After 20 minutes, remove chicken from oven. Brush chicken with glaze, raise the heat to 400 degrees F and cook chicken for about 15 more minutes. Broil them for an additional 5 minutes to get the tops of them nice and cooked and serve. Enjoy!
