  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 2 pounds organic chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (code LEXI for 10% off)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, adjust based on desired spice level
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground garlic powder
  • Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds
  • Sriracha Mayo:
  • 1/3 cup homemade mayo
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha


  1. Place wings in a plastic bag and add in oil, garlic, and spices. Toss to combine.
  2. Let marinade for 30 minutes up to overnight.
  3. Preheat grill to medium heat. Grease grill and place wings on.
  4. Let cook for 7 minutes then flip for a remaining 7, until no pink remains.
  5. Serve with sriracha mayo or desired dipping sauce!


Bake these instead: Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Line a baking dish with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes. Using tongs, flip wings and bake for another 10 minutes.

Broil for 1-2 minutes to get the wings extra crispy. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Serve warm with dipping sauce!

  3. We love this dry rub!! We do wings weekly now with it and have used it on thighs too. Every time we make it for someone they rave about it.
