That Hot Wing Desire
A few years ago I discovered how much I like wings. My husband and I had gone out to eat and landed at a Buffalo Wild Wings. It was my first experience at one of those lively pub-like atmospheres. The wings were delicious and watching peoples reactions to their favorite ball teams playing on those many television screens was priceless. Talk about LOUD. What a great way to sell wings!
Now, every once in a while I just gotta have some hot wings,. Maybe it took the Buffalo Wild Wings atmosphere to get my attention about how good they really are. Although, most hot wings are fried I much prefer them baked or grilled. A friend of ours shared with us this easy way of preparing them on the grill. I used to buy the premixed hot wings seasoning for baking, but now I prefer this way of cooking them. They turn out crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside and clean-up is a breeze.
Preparing the Wings
Starting by dousing the wings with hot sauce in a plastic bag adds the right amount of flavor. If you want more heat you can add your favorite seasonings. Let the wings marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but not more than an hour and a half. Marinating them longer does not seem to improve the flavor, but may even take away some of the hot sauce’s zing. Remove the bag from the refrigerator and cook the wings on a hot preheated grill for 30-40 minutes, turning them over in the middle of cooking time. Serve with ranch dressing and/or more hot sauce if you like and enjoy!Print
Grilled Hot Wings
These grilled hot wings are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. You can’t eat just one.
3 pounds chicken wings, rinsed and patted dried
1 (5-ounce) bottle of a Louisiana hot sauce
Cajun seasoning blend (optional)
1-gallon storage bag
Cut the tips off of wings and discard them. Cut wings in two separating them at the joint. Place them in the plastic bag. Pour the whole bottle of hot sauce into the bag over chicken and add seasoning if desired. Marinate for 30-60 minutes. Place on preheated grill turning occasionally, until cooked.
