Lime-Marinated Chicken Wings with Avocado Dip

Makes 6 to 8 servings


1 1⁄2 limes
1⁄2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, trimmed and sliced
2 teaspoons tomato paste
4 cloves garlic, chopped
Pinch salt
3 pounds chicken wings, rinsed and patted dry

1. For marinade, finely grate the zest and squeeze the juice from limes. In a blender, combine zest and juice with remaining marinade ingredients; puree until smooth. Pour marinade over the chicken and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate overnight. 2. Preheat broiler. Arrange chicken on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Broil at least 6 inches from the heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until chicken is crispy on the outside and cooked through. Serve with Avocado Dip.
