Baked Piri Piri Chicken Wings

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Chicken


  • 3 lb chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup garlic-infused grape seed oil (I used this brand)
  • 3 tbsp aglio e peperoncino (I used this brand)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 3/4 cup piri piri sauce (I used this brand)
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp butter


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together garlic oil, garlic powder, aglio e peperoncino, plus salt and pepper to taste. Dip and coat chicken wings in the oil mixture, then transfer wings to the prepared baking sheet. It’s okay to load up the baking sheet with wings – just keep them in a single layer and not touching. When all of the wings have been coated, pour any excess oil mixture on top of the chicken.
  3. Bake chicken for 35-40 minutes.
  4. While chicken cooks, add piri piri sauce, honey, and butter to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Once the sauce begins to bubble, reduce heat to low until the next step.
  5. When chicken is done cooking, remove from oven. Separate 1/3 of the honey piri piri sauce and brush it on one side of the chicken wings. Return chicken wings to the oven and cook for about 2 minutes. Optional step: remove wings from the oven, use tongs to flip them over, brush on more honey piri piri sauce, and cook for another 2 minutes.
  6. Serve chicken wings immeidately with remaining warm honey piri piri sauce for dipping.
