Grilled Hot, Sweet and Sticky Chicken Wings

Total Time

The name says it all for these wings. These are easy and tasty....quite spicy for the heat lovers...decrease the amounts of Tabasco and chili powder if you can't take the heat! Prep time does not include marinating time.

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the first 9 ingredients (ketchup through chili powder).
  2. Rinse the chicken wings under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

These were quite tasty with nice color, but I would have liked a more spicy/complex flavor. I made another batch of chicken with a teriyaki marinade and I was surprised how similar the two different marinades tasted. The other on used fresh garlic and I tasted it more that way. I used this marinade on wings and breasts. The chicken needed some extra minding on the grill since they had a tendency to stick (I sprayed with PAM). These were good with mac n cheese!

Overall good time I will omit the sugar and increase the hot sauce. Be sure to watch these like a hawk....they burn very easily over direct charcoal (of course this is my issue, cooking 101....sugars burn very easily).
