Recipe: Spanish Spicy Chicken Wings

Cooking 20 Preparation 30 10 easy
Recipe type: Appetizer Cuisine: Spanish

The Spanish may not fully understand American football, but they certainly identify with soul-nourishing family feasts that stretch leisurely on until long after the sun goes down. A classic BBQ star and Super Bowl Party essential, chicken wings can be done in countless ways. So, in keeping with your theme, we have a marinade recipe that is sweet, smoky, spicy, and Spanish.

We incorporate smoked Spanish paprika, honey, sesame, and sherry vinegar with Spanish olive oil to give a nice kick to the taste buds and a knowing nod to the North African influences on the flavors of Andalusia.

  • 30-40 each chicken wings
  • 3 cups olive oil
  • 1 cup sherry vinegar
  • tbsp. of smoked sweet paprika
  • ½ tbsp. smoked spicy paprika (you can substitute 1 teaspoon of cayenne)
  • tbsp. honey
  • tbsp. sesame seeds
  • tbsp. chopped rosemary
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Coarse salt (for grilling)


  1. The basic ratio for a marinade is three parts oil for one part vinegar, so in this recipe, a total of four cups of marinade (olive oil plus vinegar) should be enough to fully cover 30-40 chicken wings.
  2. Simply whisk all of the ingredients (except the salt) together well and taste before adding the chicken. If it’s too acidic, add a little more oil. If it is flat, splash in some more vinegar. If you want more spice, kick it up.
  3. Next, toss the chicken with the marinade in a glass or stainless steel container
  4. Cover the marinade by pressing plastic wrap onto the surface of the meat, and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Remove the chicken wings from the refrigerator and from the marinade 30 minutes before grilling to allow them to warm up slightly.
  6. Season the chicken with coarse salt and grill over a moderate flame until just cooked through to the bone.
