In my last post, I showed you my recipe for Homemade Jerk Seasoning Mix. I discovered jerk seasoning on my honeymoon to Jamaica in 1999 when we stayed at a Beaches resort and ate everything in site.
Brooks fell in love with the Blue Mountain Coffee and I fell in love with unlimited drinks, the rum, and all the food you could stand.
The jerk seasoning that they had on their chicken was so amazing, I just had to make my own jerk chicken wings at home.
Jamaican Jerk Wings
Now you know I love chicken wings. They are the perfect snack food that doubles as a meal. I could eat chicken wings all day long.
In fact, when I was pregnant with my oldest son, I forced my hubby to eat at Hooters three to four times a week. Not that he complained much about that.

How to make Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings
STEP ONE: Just throw the wings in a zip-top bag, add some of my Homemade Jerk Seasoning and a few tablespoons of olive oil.
STEP TWO: Squish the bag around to spread the seasoning evenly over the wings. Let it sit for about an hour, or overnight if you want.
STEP THREE: When you are ready, bake in the oven for about 45 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your wings.
STEP FOUR: Enjoy with something to cool your mouth off with!
I love to make chicken wings at home because the skin in my wings has to be super crispy. When I say super crispy, I mean I want to hear loud crunching noises in every bite.
Every time I go out for wings they never make them crispy enough or they sit in their sauce waiting to be delivered to the table until they get soggy again.
If you hate soggy chicken wing skin like I do, use this rack to bake your chicken wings. It brings the wings above the pan so they are not sitting in their own juices while they cook and the skin can crisp up on all sides.
I served these Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings with Cilantro-Ginger Avocado Cream Sauce because the creaminess helps cool down the heat from the Jerk seasoning!
Feel free to dip the wings, drizzle it on the top, or just stick your face in it after you eat too many wings and your lips are on fire.
How long can they marinate?
A: The longer they sit, the spicier they will be so I wouldn’t go more than 48 hours.
Can I fry the wings after they are marinated?
Yes, you can! You can deep fry them or cook them in the air fryer!
What if I am allergic to certain spices?
I don’t like certain spices either, so just feel free to leave out those individual spices that don’t agree with you.
Are these chicken wings gluten-free?
Yes, they are! They are also, Paleo and Keto friendly. Just remove the brown sugar from the spice mix.
