These Jerk Chicken Wings are marinated with smokey, spicy seasonings and tangy lime juice.  Baked in the oven until perfectly crispy, they are a great choice for parties or family dinner.


Units Scale
  • 3 pounds chicken wings, separated into drummettes and flat tips (about 20 pieces)
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 -2 teaspoons habanero pepper sauce *
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice, (about 2 large limes)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger, or 1/2 teaspoon ground
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar ( I used Swerve sugar substitute)**
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons vinegar


  1. Place chicken wings in a zipper style plastic bag.
  2. Stir together all spices, habanero sauce, lime juice, vinegar and oil.  Pour over chicken wings.
  3. Place in refrigerator and let marinate for at least 2 hours or up to 6 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 425°F. 
  5. Lightly spray a cooking rack with non stick spray.  Remove wings from marinade and place on a rack over a large baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes and flip the wings over and continue baking for another 20 minutes.
  7. If you want the skin to be extra crispy, you can place the wings under the broiler for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Check chicken wings with meat thermometer.  The wings are done at 165°F.


  • We are keeping the wings lower carb and using brown sugar substitute.  You can use regular brown sugar, it won't affect the marinade.
  • Habanero sauce brands vary in their spiciness/heat level.  Always start with the lowest amount and taste the marinade.  You can always add more if you like it spicier.
  • Make sure to lightly pat the wings dry after you have removed them from marinade.  This will help make them crispy in the oven.
