Baked Chicken Wings are super easy to make. What makes these special is the marinade. You can let them sit in the marinade all day, or up to 24 hours. The longer they sit, they more flavor they get.
And that green sauce? Oh my it is delicious. To come up with this recipe I researched a lot about different flavors and traditions in Peruvian cuisine. One repeating thing I found was green sauce. It is a creamy sauce with tons of cilantro, garlic, and lime. It is so easy to make, and good on just about anything.
You can put the green sauce on these baked chicken wings, or steak, or a burger, a salad, or even on roasted veggies it would be amazing. Store any leftovers in the fridge, and you will find a million uses for it.
So go ENTER to win this amazing trip. And send me lots of pictures if you go.
