Somehow, I always forget that I'm a huge fan of chicken wings. They're simple to fix up, and are small enough that you don't feel like you're eating a lot — even after you've chowed down an entire platter. They also make perfect party food, and go great with the fall sporting season. You can do them in the oven, but why not make the most out of the last few weeks of summer by throwing them on the barbecue. To check out a great recipe for grilled jerk chicken wings,
1/2 cup Caribbean jerk seasoning
18 fresh chicken wingettes (2 to 3 pounds)
2 cups honey barbecue sauce
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Yield: 6 servings.
- Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill.
- Place jerk seasoning in a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken wings, a few at a time, and shake to coat.
- In a small bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, mustard and ginger; set aside.
- Grill chicken wings, covered, over medium heat for 12-16 minutes, turning occasionally.
- Brush with sauce.
- Grill, uncovered, 8-10 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting and turning several times.
