Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings

This is one of the best recipes for chicken wings that you will ever use. We like to grill the chicken instead of frying because it gives the wings a great crunch without having to deal with frying.



1 package of pre-cut chicken wings, which is 12 pieces with the tips already discarded, or you can get a package of six whole wings that you cut at the joints and discard the tips.

Season with salt and pepper.


½ stick butter or margarine

7 tablespoons of brown sugar

3 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon onion flakes

½ teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce

½ teaspoon cayenne powder

½ teaspoon red chili flakes

½ teaspoon chipotle seasoning

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon powdered ginger



Season the wings with salt and pepper while the grill is preheating on high.

Once the grill is hot, place your wings on the grate. Cook until the wings are a nicely charred and crispy.

Chicken just off the grill.

Take the wings off the grill and cover with tinfoil.

Now it is time to construct the sauce (it is best to wait until the wings are done to do this because this way you will not over heat the sauce, overheating turns the sauce into caramel).

Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. As soon as the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted remove from heat and pour over the wings, toss to coat.

These wings are excellent with Summer Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette
