It’s true! In fact, one of our favorite ways to put a new twist on chicken wings is to make them citrusy, which makes the wings absolutely delectable. Here’s our favorite recipe for citrusy chicken wings that you are sure to love.


  • 1 lb chicken bone-in wings
  • 4 ounces orange juice
  • 2 ounces lime juice
  • 2 ounces lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Valentina hot sauce
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. Start off by placing the chicken wings, along with the orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice, and Valentina hot sauce inside of a plastic bag. Put the bag inside of your refrigerator and let it marinate for 2-4 hours.
  2. After this, take the wings out of the bag and put them on a plate. Combine black pepper and garlic powder (to taste) and rub onto the wings.
  3. Place inside of a frying pan on medium heat and cook thoroughly on both sides. A golden-brown coat should develop on the outside of the skin, and this will help you know that they are ready to eat.
