Super Bowl and Limoncello-Marinated Chicken Wings!

As most of you know, at least if you watch football, the Broncos made it to the Super Bowl!!! This is a very exciting time, indeed! Though I love any reason to get together with friends to enjoy good food and delicious beer, this will be an even better time as we will all be rooting on the Broncos!

Chicken wings are always a great addition to a Super Bowl spread and this year I get to share with all of you the special Limoncello-Marinated Chicken Wing recipe from Marco’s Coal-Fired Pizza. These wings have lots of flavor! I love ranch with my wings but these definitely do not need it!

Limoncello-Marinated Chicken Wings
~Recipe of Famous Chef Mark Dym from Marco’s Coal-Fired Pizza
~Serves 5 to 6 (depending on how hungry you are)

Marinade:
3 whole organic lemons, quartered
1/2 cup limoncello
1/4 ounce fresh thyme (about 1/2 T.)
3 ounces fresh rosemary (about 6T)
1/4 ounce fresh oregano (about 1/2 T.)
2 tablespoons kosher salt
Pinch of crushed red pepper
1 1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil

5 pounds chicken wings

Notes on ingredients:

Using organic lemons is important since you are using the whole lemon. Also, I only used about a tablespoon and a half of salt and I used less olive oil. This makes the marinade thicker which still worked fine but you may have to shake marinade off before cooking.

  • Blend the quartered lemons, limoncello and rest of marinade ingredients in a food processor.
  • Fully coat the chicken wings and marinate in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
  • Remove from marinade, and bake or grill wings at 450 degrees until browned and cooked through, 20 to 30 minutes. Actual coal-fired oven preferred, but not required.

Notes on cooking:

I tried both baking and grilling. I prefer my wings grilled because I like the charred flavor but both methods are delicious! If using a gas grill, cook on low for about 10 minutes on each side. In the oven, it took longer due to some of the marinade juices remaining in the dish. To actually get some color you may need to remove any extra juices from the cooking dish.

Not feeling adventurous? Marco’s delivers within a three mile radius so that you can provide fresh pizza and wings for all your guests for the big game without lifting a finger! Some of my favorite pizza choices are: The Bronx, Pistacchio, and the Del Re but you CANNOT go wrong with any of their pizzas!

My two year old niece even loved the wings! She will be in her Broncos cheerleader outfit on Sunday! Go Broncos!!! :D

  1. We’re making these tomorrow – I think we’ll grill them. If we can find the grill under all the snow, that is. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I don’t follow football so I don’t have a horse in this race, Or rather, I didn’t but on your account, now I’ll vicariously root for the Broncos. Go Broncos!

    Your niece is adorable! And oh my the chicken wings …

  4. It looks a wonderful marinade – really fresh and zingy. And what a sweet niece you’ve got! My 9 month old niece is staying at the moment – super cute and very noisy, hahaha ;)
