Ingredients

  • 4 lb chicken wings
  • 3 cups plain yogurt
  • 3 oz beer
  • 4 limes
  • 1 1/2" ginger root—coarsely chopped
  • 2 t dried thyme
  • 1 t dried lavender (yes!)
  • 1 t black pepper
  • 3/4 t sea salt
  • 1 1/2 T sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Rinse and poke holes into the wings with a sharp knife, so marinade penetrates the flesh of the chicken. Juice 2 limes and mix with remaining ingredients, except the oil. Marinate refrigerated for 1-3 days, stirring the mixture occasionally.

  2. Grill over indirect BBQ flame or oil a preheated, baking sheet and oven roasting wings at 475º. Flip wings after 30 minutes. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Serve with remaining limes cut into wedges and celery sticks.

Sauce Safety

It's okay to brush additional sauce on the wings as they cook, but not after the halfway point because the bacteria from the raw chicken is also in the sauce. Be sure to allow ample time for it to burn away to be safe to eat. Dispose of leftover marinade and serve with clean utensils.
