Mama’s Chicken Wings

This recipe is an extremely special one for me, as it is one that has run in the family for a multitude of generations. With a unique twist of Lebanese shish tawouk spices, topped with tomato sauce and garlic, these wings are definitely one of a kind. I love to have them with a side of toum, a traditional Lebanese garlic sauce — you can find the recipe here!


  • 1 pound chicken wings
  • 4 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon shish tawouk spices
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil


  1. Mix together the chicken marinate — the tomato sauce, shish tawouk spices, crushed garlic cloves, vinegar, and cooking oil.
  2. Mix marinade well into chicken wings, leaving them for a couple of hours (around 2-3 hours) for optimum taste.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius (400 F)
  4. Wrap the chicken, with the marinade, in tinfoil and place in pre-heated oven. This traps the moisture and allows it cook well and tender, without the outsides getting overcooked. Cook while wrapped for around 30 minutes.
  5. Open up the foil to expose the wings to the oven heat, allowing the outsides to cook. Keep turning wings for the next 10-20 minutes until browned.
  6. Serve!
