If you think chicken wings only belong in the fryer and not on the grill, think again. These recipes are great for bar and grill-style restaurants and result in piles of juicy, flavorful wings that will have everyone wanting seconds. The secret is brining the chicken wings ahead of time to make them moist and flavorful.
Chili Lime Wings
These wings are a bit spicy, but the tanginess from the lime juice keeps them from being overpowering. Serve them with a blue cheese or ranch dipping sauce.
Combine the water, salt, and 1 cup of lime juice in a large bucket. Stir until the salt dissolves, and then add the wings. Place the bucket in the refrigerator, and let the wings brine overnight.
When you're ready to grill, remove the wings from the brine, and discard the liquid. Combine the canola oil and remaining lime juice, and brush the wings with this mixture. Then, sprinkle them evenly with the chili powder.
Place the wings on a medium-hot grill, and grill for about 15 minutes per side. The wings should be fully browned and crispy. Remove from the grill, and let cool slightly before serving.
Citrus Barbecue Wings
Sticky and sweet, these citrus barbecue wings will have you licking your fingers. They don't need any dipping sauce to accompany them.
Combine the water and salt in a large bucket. Stir to dissolve the salt, add the wings, and refrigerate overnight.
While the wings are still brining, work on preparing the sauce. Combine the ketchup, molasses, orange juice, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, brown sugar and vinegar in a saucepan. Heat the mixture over low heat just until the sugar is fully dissolved.
When you're ready to grill the wings, drain off the brine and pat the wings dry with some paper towels. Brush the wings with a thin layer of the sauce, and then place them on a medium-hot grill. Grill them for 15 minutes per side, brushing them with the sauce when you flip them over and again just before you remove them from the grill. Let cool slightly before serving.
If you don't feel up to grilling your own wings this weekend, head to a local sports bar to check out what they have to offer.Share
