Coconut Chicken Wings

Recipe by internetnut
READY IN: 33mins
SERVES: 6-12




  • In a large bowl, whisk together the first 7 ingredients, then whisk in the coconut milk. Reserve and refrigerate 1/2 cup of the mixture divided evenly in 2 containers.
  • Cut off the tips of the wings (reserve them for stock or discard), then halve the wings at the joint. Place them in the bowl and toss them with the marinade. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least an hour, but preferably overnight.
  • Just before grilling the wings, toast the coconut in a medium size skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Pour the flakes onto a plate and allow them to cool, then lightly crumble the flakes with your fingers and set them aside.
  • Prepare the grill for cooking and oil the grates. Grill the wings 8-10 minutes per side, turning once, or until the meat at each turn.
  • As the wings finish cooking, warm the other container of reserved marinade in a small saucepan until heated through.
  • Transfer the cooked wings to a platter and coat them with the warmed marinade. Sprinkle the wings with the toasted coconut and serve them immediately. Serve 6 as a main dish or 12 as an appetizer.
