"With fall we’re getting ready to tailgate, have family get-togethers, and celebrate the many fall birthdays in our family. We all love the flavors of traditional Mexican food but we decided to meld them with appetizers to get party-friendly foods with the flavor we love. These Baked Spicy BBQ Adobo Chicken Wings are a reference to Buffalo Chicken Wings with the kick of adobo sauce. Served with Knorr’s Cream Chipotle Dip Recipe, they’re a hit at every family gathering!"

NotesWe used this method of wing cooking: The baking soda dries out the skin to help get a crispy baked wing. Baking on low heat for 30 minutes renders out the fat and then turning the oven up crisps up the skin. Using a rack over the cookie sheet allows air to circulate all around the wing so that the underside doesn’t get soggy from sitting in the dripping fat.

Preparation Time10 min


  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 4 pounds chicken wings, defrosted
  • 1 tablespoon Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle peppers, in adobo sauce, or just two tbsp. of the sauce, depending on your heat preference
  1. MICROWAVE lime juice and Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon in small microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 30 seconds or until hot.

  2. COMBINE bouillon mixture with sour cream, Mayonnaise, cilantro and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

  3. Prepare the Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon with water. Brine chicken wings in broth in fridge for 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat oven to 250ºF and place a wire rack, such as a cooling rack, in a cookie sheet. Rub the rack with olive oil or another paleo-friendly oil.

  5. Pat defrosted chicken wings dry and then add to a plastic bag. Add salt and baking powder and shake bag to coat evenly.

  6. Place wings in a single layer on the rack and place the cookie sheet and rack on the bottom rack of the oven. Bake for 30 minutes to render out the fat.
