Charred Harissa Chicken Wings

Krista Towns


Slow cooking the chicken wings after charring makes them extra tender and delicious!

These would also pair nicely with a lemon-herb aioli, or Greek yogurt sauce.

  4. Lower the oven temperature to 250 degrees, place the wings back on the rack, cover with aluminum foil and continue to cook for an additional 55-60 minutes. Uncover for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.
