Barbecue Chicken Wings

Barbecue Wings with Kraft

Barbecue Chicken Wings

Are you a big wing fan? I am, but the kind you get in your local bar are likely deep fried before being tossed in that buffalo, teriyaki, or barbecue sauce. That, I’m NOT a fan of. I love fried foods, but for wings? I HIGHLY prefer them grilled. The skin gets crispy, the meat stays moist, and you get that amazing barbecue flavor that deep frying just don’t touch.

Because Seattle is evidently awesome is EVERY way, our “winter” grilling experience consisted of bright sunshine and temps that got up into the 60’s.

We’ll take it!

Good wings start with good seasoning though, so make sure you take those fresh wings and coat them liberally with your favorite seasoning mix. We love a combination of garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt, cayenne pepper, and paprika.

Grill the wings over medium low heat. Low and slow for these! They take time to cook fully and let that skin crisp up. Use a meat thermometer if you aren’t sure they are done. Grills vary in cooking times. It took ours about 15 minutes to cook fully.

Once they are done, take them off the grill and let cool for a minute. Some of my kids like them plain and unsauced.

But most of them love their wings messy!

When we make wings, we usually make a meal out of it and serve 6-8 wings per person along with a salad and starch of some kind.

My Easy Cheesy Orzo would be perfect with this!

Sorry, I haven't grill. Can I make "grilled" chicken wings in normal (electric) oven?

Thank you very much your receipts.

Yours sincerely

Hi Marianne! You can definitely make these in the oven. I haven't tested it though, so I'm afraid I don't have a ton of advice to give you regarding times or temperatures!
