    serves 2-4


These spicy grilled wings pair perfectly with nuoc cham, a Vietnamese dipping sauce.


  • 2 lb. chicken wings, separated into 2 pieces
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. cracked coriander seeds
  • 12 tsp. crushed red chile flakes
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Nuoc cham, for serving


Step 1

Put chicken wings, lime juice, coriander, chile flakes, and garlic into a large bowl; season with salt and toss to combine. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat gas grill to medium-high. Cook wings, turning occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Using tongs, move chicken wings to a cooler part of the grill, cover, and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until cooked through, about 10 minutes more. Transfer chicken wings to a platter and serve with nuoc cham.
