Baked Salsa Verde Wings

Oh, yum! Juicy, flavorful wings! I had no idea how great of a marinade salsa verde could be. It really added a fantastic flavor to these wings. They were so tender, yet still had a nicely crunchy skin. Served with citrus salsa verde cream sauce for dipping, I really enjoyed these wings!

If you have any juices on the baking dish as the wings cook, brush it back onto the wings for extra flavor. I found it important to turn the wings often to get a nice even cook and also crunchy skin. I did not have to put the wings under the broiler to crunch them up, these baked salsa verde wings didn’t need it!
