Sit back, relax and get ready for some heat! The mamas have got a heat searing appetizer with a cooling dip. Make sure you've got your rum punch handy to make this all go down smoothly. This was truly a team effort by The Good Lookin' Cookin' Mamas for ZWT 3.

  1. In a bowl add all marinade ingredients juice of two limes, 2 cups coke, 3/4 cup coconut rum 3 teaspoons of jerk seasoning and combine with a whisk.
  2. In a large container put in in wings and pour marinade over them and seal the container with a lid or wrap in in plastic wrap.
  3. Wings should Marinate over night for best flavor.
  4. To make Rub: Combine 3-4 Tablespoons Seasoning and 3-5 Tablespoons Coconut rum until the mixture has a loose paste like mixture but can still stick to your wings. You may need more rum depending on your preferences ;).
  5. Get your grill hot and ready for your wings.
  6. Lay the wings out on the grill evenly spaced and not touching each other, if your grill isn't big enough for all 30 wings. Cook them in two batches.
  7. Since the cooking time is different for each grill, in the first fifteen minutes check for the heat of your grill and how your wings are responding to the heat and whether you'll need to adjust the heat or not.
  8. Flip wings after 15 minutes and apply rub to the wings sparingly, the jerk seasoning is very hot in spice. Let wings cook for another 15 minutes and flip and apply rub sparingly.
  9. Repeat process until wings are done about an hour total process, depending on your home grill it could take a longer or shorter period of time.
  10. To Make Dipping Sauce: Combine all ingredients together and refrigerate until cold.Garnish with chopped cilantro before serving.

Made these to watch the bowl games on the second of Jan. WOW! I really loved these, especially with the cucumber dipping sauce. Everyone who tried them raved about them. Thanks so much for posting!

Made these Sunday and absolutely loved them! The sweetness of the coconut rum came through in the wings and the spice was perfect! I doubled the sauce and quadrupled the rum in it. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY! I can't wait for lunch today when I am having the left overs! Thanks for such a great and fun recipe!

My mother is not big at all on chicken wings (odd, I know!) So I used chicken breasts so that she could enjoy these too. I went on the lighter side with the rub since some people here are afraid of heat too! The marinade was great! I absolutly loved the flavor the rum gave the chicken, just perfect! Also the dip was great. The left over dip made a great spread for sandwhichs with the left over sliced chicken once I added a little more cucumbers to the mix. Love this recipe, cant wait to try it with wings!
