Grilled Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are one of my favorite summery meals to make because they are fast to make, fun to eat and fantastically cheap! There are many ways to prepare these little guys, but doing a quick boil with a good low heat grill and lather them up with our favorite sauces is just how we seem to like them. Be sure to have lots of wet wipes on hand because the messier you get the more you seem to enjoy eating them.


2 lbs chicken wings (serves 2-3 people)
2-3 Tbsp sauce per 9-10 pieces


Cut each wing at the two joints with a large knife and disregard the wing's tip (far right in picture above).

This creates the wing and drummie.

Add all the pieces to 2 quarts of boiling water in a large pot. Let the water come back to a boil and continue to boil for about 5 minutes. Start up your grill and get it hot.

Drain the water out of the pan before dumping the wings out on to the grill.

Turn down the heat to medium low and close the cover. After 5 minutes turn them and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Then continue to keep turning them every 3-4 minutes until they are well cooked meaning they are not juicy and have a golden crispy skin.

In various bowls, add your favorite sauces (about 2-3 Tbsp for 8-10 wings/drummies). Here we have Asian Zing Sauce (Buffalo Wild Wings), Frank's Hot Sauce Buffalo Wings Sauce, Sweet and Saucy BBQ (Famous Dave's).

Drop your wings in the bowl.

Toss them well in the sauce and serve.
