grilled hot wings

My dear parents.... until I was around 12 years old they couldn't get me to eat anything other than hot wings. I still absolutely think that hot wings are amazing. I'm pretty sure that's when Jake and I knew we were meant to be together, when we discovered our incredible love for hot wings. Chicken wings are loaded with protein, and the skin adds flavor. With no empty carbs, metabolism firing cayenne pepper, and heart healthy garlic, these wings are a sure thing. If you want to make these healthier, you can use a few breasts of chicken cut into strips and go about everything the same way, minus the chopping of the wings. These can also be baked but grilling makes them taste so delicious!

Package of chicken wings
1/4 cup hot sauce (Frank's)
2 T gluten free, low sodium soy sauce
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 T honey
1 T Sambal hot chili sauce
Finishing Sauce:
3 T butter
1/2 cup hot sauce (Frank's)
1 T gluten free, low sodium soy sauce
1 T Sambal hot chili sauce

Rinse the wings off with cool water. Find the joints and cut the wing tips off then cut the wing into the two pieces at the middle joint. Marinate the wings in the wing sauce for about 8 hours (the longer the better). Prepare finishing sauce in pan about 15 minutes before grilling. Grill the wings on medium for 7-9 minutes per side or until the juice in the wings run clear. Toss the finished wings into the finishing sauce in the pan until wings are covered. I like to serve the wings with a side of brown rice and side salad.


  1. Angela, you know I could definately give you a recipe from umma for her hot wings. Korean Style! Using sesame oil and thai bird chilies. The hottest and most delicious wings.

  2. I would love to get that recipe from you! The spicier the better!
