Description

Sticky Lime Grilled Chicken Wings. Perfect for a group of friends.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Chicken Wings, (3 Pounds Should Be Roughly 25 Wings), Washed And Patted Dry
  • ¼ cups Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 2 whole Limes, Zested
  • ⅔ cups Frank's Red Hot Original
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • ¼ cups Butter, Melted
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Skin Removed And Crushed
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 pinches Kosher Salt And Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil For The Grill

Preparation

1. Heat the grill to medium high heat (400 F). Season the wings with a generous amount of coarse salt and black pepper. Rub the grill grates with oil so the wings do not stick. Add the wings to the grill and cover the grill. Flip every couple of minutes or so, until they’re slightly charred and crisp and cooked through, roughly 20 minutes. Keep an eye for flare-ups and burning, turning down the heat or moving the wings off the direct hot spot until the flares are under control.
2. Meanwhile, combine the lime juice, lime zest, hot sauce, maple syrup, butter, garlic and cayenne pepper in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate. Before the wings are done, transfer the sauce to a medium pan over medium low and heat the sauce.
3. Remove the wings from the grill and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the warmed sauce over top and stir to combine. Enjoy!!

Delicious sauce! The maple syrup added a nice touch of sweetness , and was not overbearing. I used, instead of Frank’s, a hot pepper sauce called Fresenero (from the mixture of Fresno peppers and haberneros) and the outcome was extra spicy with the lime still biting through; so I would recommend switching out for different hot sauces to fit your spice level!
