Ingredients

To make the marinade for the wings:

2 cups buttermilk

3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

2 chipotle chiles from chipotles chiles in adobo sauce, seeded and minced

1 tablespoon sauce from chipotle chiles in adobo sauce

1/4 cup orange juice

Zest of an orange

1 tablespoon kosher or coarse sea salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 pounds chicken wings


To make the chicken wing sauce:

4 tablespoons agave syrup or maple syrup

1 garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

2 tablespoons sauce from chipotle chiles in adobo sauce

1 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon kosher or coarse sea salt, or to taste


To make the dipping sauce:

1 cup Mexican crema, crème fraiche or sour cream

1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco or a mild feta cheese

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves and upper parts of stems

2 tablespoons chopped chives

Kosher or coarse sea salt, to taste

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Carrot and celery sticks to eat along with the wings and dip in the dipping sauce

To Prepare

In a large bowl or baking dish, add all the ingredients for the wing marinade: buttermilk, garlic, chipotle chiles, sauce from chipotles in adobo, orange juice, orange zest, salt and pepper, mix to combine. Add the chicken wings and mix well to make sure all of the wings are coated. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 450°F. Place a cooling rack onto a lined (with aluminum foil or parchment paper) rimmed baking sheet and brush the cooling rack with vegetable oil. Remove the wings from the marinade and place them directly onto the cooling rack. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, flipping once after 25 minutes, until crisp and browned on all sides.

While the wings are baking, place a small saucepan over medium heat and add all of the ingredients for the chicken wing sauce: agave syrup, garlic, Tabasco sauce, sauce from chipotles in adobo, vinegar, olive oil and salt, bring to a simmer. Whisk to emulsify and combine. Turn off the heat and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the crema, queso fresco, lime juice, cilantro, chives and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and set aside.

Once the wings are ready, place them in a large bowl. Whisk the agave wing sauce once more with a fork or whisk, then pour it over the wings and toss well so that all the wings are coated. Serve with the crema dipping sauce on the side.

I saw Pati make this on TV this weekend and I had to make it as well. Delicious! I love the buttermilk marinade with orange and the glaze is fantastic. Thank you for a wonderful and easy recipe.

So glad you liked it!



These chicken wings and macaroni and cheese are me and my husband’s new FAVORITE!!!! They were both soo good that I can’t wait to cook them for someone else!

Hi Aastria, Thrilled to hear your husband enjoys the wings and macaroni! Thank you for making them!!



Hi Patti,

I love your show and have tried several recipes that you feature on your show. Thank you so much!!

Thank you, Chris!!



I made these wings last Wednesday night and they were delicious! My husband liked them so much that he asked me to make them again this Saturday. They were extremely tasty with a deep and textured flavor. I consider myself a bit of a wings expert, and these were definitely right up there!

I am so happy to get the thumbs up from a wings connoisseur!!



Chicken wings look good. Thank you – will try !


made the wings the day I saw the show. they were a hit with the family the will go into my chicken rotation. I love your shows.

I love it that they will be in your chicken rotations, great news!



I watched this episode and everything looked fantastic. I will try it all but would also like to make the Mexican version of our hot dog. It looked excellent. Where can I get the recipe? Thank you so much!

Hola Margaret, I hope you try the wings! For the Sonoran Hot Dog, here goes: Wrap a turkey hot dog with bacon and grill. Split the grilled bacon-wrapped hot dog in half lengthwise, add 2 tablespoons grated melty cheese (such as mozzarella or monterey jack), and place back on the grill to melt cheese. Then serve on a buttered hot dog bun that has been toasted on the grill, and top with sausage, a drizzle of mayo, mustard, ketchup, chopped tomato and onion, and a grilled jalapeño chile.
