  • 1/4 onion (or whole shallot), finely chopped
  • 3 limes, juice only (about 6 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus 3 tbsp for veggies (or neutral oil like vegetable or grapeseed)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (preferably low sodium)
  • 1 tbsp honey (optional)
  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 pound peppers, quartered
  • 1 large onion, quartered
  • 2 bunches scallions, ends trimmed
  • kosher salt
  • fresh herbs and/or thinly slice chilis for serving (optional)


  • Combine lime juice and chopped onion in a small container. Let sit 10 minutes for the onion to mellow out.
  • In a separate bowl or container with lid, combine the sesame oil, 1/4 cup olive oil, soy sauce, and honey (if using). Add the lime and onion mixture. Shake or stir to combine.
  • Season each piece of chicken with a few pinches of salt and add to a resealable bag or container. Shake the dressing to re-combine and pour in, leaving about 1/2 cup in your jar for serving. Seal the bag, turn the chicken to coat and place in the refrigerator 2 to 24 hours.
  • Prepare a grill for medium heat. Add the chicken and grill until charred and browned all over, 12-15 minutes for whole wings, 8-10 minutes for separated wings. Flip wings a few times throughout cooking. Add to a serving platter or baking sheet.
  • Toss veggies with 3 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp kosher salt. Add to grill and cook, tossing occasionally, until nicely charred. About 4-6 minutes for scallions, 6-8 minutes for onions, and 10-12 minutes for peppers. Add to chicken.
  • Pour remaining sesame lime dressing over serving dish. Taste and season with salt if needed. Top with freshly chopped or torn herbs and/or thinly slice chilis if using.



Grilled Veggie Substitutions - You can substitute just about any vegetable(s) you'd like instead of peppers, onions, and scallions. Leeks, carrots, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and broccoli all work great as well.
Olive Oil Substitution - A neutral oil like vegetable or grapeseed oil will work well instead of olive oil in the vinaigrette. Olive oil was used for nutrition purposes, but it may add a different flavor. Most neutral oils are refined and processed. But, they will allow the sesame oil flavor to shine.
