As promised, it’s football food week here on BitchinCamero and nothing says football like sticky, spicy wings. And nothing is better than grilling during the fall, so I present these Grilled Honey Garlic Wings for your tailgating pleasure.
These wings were marinated for hours in a special marinade of honey, garlic, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, smoked paprika and cayenne. When I threw them on the grill, the honey and garlic caramelized to a lovely dark brown. The wings were sweet, spicy and so tender. Our fingers were sticky, our faces messy. You gotta love wings.
Grilled Honey Garlic Wings
2 lbs. chicken wings and drumsticks (we used only drumsticks)
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. deli-style mustard
5 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/3 cup Shoyu (or soy sauce)
3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. hot smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
Whisk all of the ingredients (except the chicken!) in a big bowl. Place the chicken in the bowl with the marinade, making sure each piece is evenly covered. Cover the bowl, refrigerate and let marinade for at least an hour, or overnight.
Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 7 minutes on each side (25 – 30 minutes total), or until the chicken is cooked through, the skin is crisp and the outside is a caramel brown.
Makes 6 – 8 servings.
