  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 servings 1x




  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper


  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice



  1. Preheat oven to 425º F. Bake wings on a rack on a pan until crisp and brown, 40-50 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make yogurt dip by combining Greek yogurt, cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper. Refrigerate.
  3. Make dry rub by mixing together curry powder, cumin, ginger, cayenne and salt in a bowl.
  4. While wings are still on the rack, sprinkle with lime juice. Then sprinkle with dry rub. It’s fine if some rub drops onto the pan. Serve with yogurt sauce for dipping.
