Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients (except the wings) in a blender or a food processor and puree until it has reached a sauce like consistency.
  2. Set some marinade aside (or make extra) to brush on while grilling.
  3. Place chicken wings and marinade in a large sealable bag and try to get all the air out.
  4. Refrigerate for 4-24 hours, depending on how strong you want the flavor to be.
  5. Remove the chicken wings from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 25-30 minutes while heating the grill.
  6. Grill over medium-high heat, flipping frequently and brushing with the marinade for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. During the last 5 minutes of grilling do not brush on any more marinade to make sure all the juices cook through.
