The Ultimate Chicken Wings With Curry-Lime Butter

Prep time 25 mins
Bake time 40 mins
Yield Makes 6 to 8 appetizer servings


  • 4 pounds chicken wings*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons red curry paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Cut off wing tips, and discard; cut chicken wings in half at joint, if desired. Place wings in a large bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, tossing to coat. Arrange wings in a single layer on a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.

  2. Bake at 425° for 40 to 45 minutes or until browned and skin is crisp, turning after 20 minutes.

  3. Stir together butter and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; add wings, and toss until evenly coated. Transfer to a platter; drizzle with any remaining butter mixture. Sprinkle with cilantro.

  4. *1 (4-lb.) package frozen party-style chicken wings, thawed, may be substituted.

  5. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste.
