My recipe for sweet and spicy chicken wings is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your Super Bowl party this weekend. (Or for supper tonight…) The marinade is easy to make and the chicken grills up in no time. Alternatively, if the weather outside is frightful where you live, these wings will be just as tasty roasted in the oven.
- 2.5 pounds chicken wings/drumettes
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup agave
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- chopped green onions (garnish)
Mix all the ingredients together (except green onions). Pour into a large plastic bag with chicken. Brine overnight in the refrigerator or at least 6-8 hours.
My husband grilled these on his Big Green Egg. They cooked really quickly—in less than fifteen minutes. If you prefer to cook in the oven, roast at 350 degrees for 45 minutes until juices run clear.
Sprinkle with chopped green onions and serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
So….Seattle or Denver?
