Shawarma Spiced Chicken Wings

By Annie Trimber, @annietrimber

The big game is approaching, which means it’s time to curate your game day menu! In my house, it’s not a sports game if there aren’t chicken wings involved. So try out these yummy shawarma spiced chicken wings as part of your spread this year! A handful of spices come together for the most flavorful wings possible, which pairs deliciously with Hi-Fi Hops Reverb from ABX and Lagunitas! Each Hi-Fi Hops Reverb bottle has 10mg THC – the perfect gametime drink to keep you chill, even if your team is losing.

We season our chicken wings with a handful of warming spices typically found in shawarma, like paprika, cumin, turmeric, coriander, and more! The list is a handful, so if you don’t have all these spices in your cabinet already, feel free to purchase a pre-made shawarma spice blend.

Every good chicken wing has a delectable dipping sauce to go with it, and this recipe is no exception. These shawarma spiced wings taste heavenly when dipped in this easy-to-make garlic tahini sauce that only requires three ingredients. If you’ve ever eaten shawarma before, this dipping sauce is like if the garlic sauce toum and tahini had a baby. Simply whisk your ingredients together or give them a quick zap in the blender and you’re on your way to flavor town. The creamy nature of the dipping sauce with a hint of lemon complements our bold shawarma spiced wings like a match made in heaven!

Preheat your ovens and put the Hi-Fi Hops Reverb on ice, because we’re ready to watch some football!

Ingredients

For the wings

  • 2 - 2 ½ lbs chicken wings, dried with a paper towel
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ⅛ tsp cloves

For the dipping sauce

  • ½ cup tahini
  • 3 tbsp raw garlic sauce
  • Juice from 2 lemons (about 4 tbsp)
  • 7-9 tbsp water, depending on desired consistency
  • ¼ tsp salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Alternately, preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees. Mix together spices in a bowl.
  2. Make sure your wings are nice and dry. Transfer to a bowl and pour spice mixture on top. Toss until wings are evenly seasoned.
  3. Transfer wings to your baking sheet or air fryer. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, flipping halfway through. Alternately, air fry at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway. Option to cook the last 5 minutes at 400 degrees for extra crispiness.
  4. While your wings are cooking, whisk together all ingredients for your dipping sauce. If your sauce is too thick for dipping, add a little bit of water and whisk until you reach your desired consistency. Serve with wings.
