Friday evenings, after a long work week I look forward to relaxing on our patio with a tasty “adult” beverage and a yummy meal! With the weather warming up, it means the grills getting lots and lots of use. This particular Friday, I had a craving for wings, but didn’t want the deep fried “fatty” stuff. I decided to try mixing together a few flavors and seeing what happens. Here goes nothing!
Note – since I tossed together a few ingredients measure to your liking, taking into consideration the amount of wings you’re grilling.
- 1 Pack Chicken Wings (about 10 wings)
- Montreal steak seasoning (roughly 2 tbsp)
- Soy Sauce (about 2/3 – 1 cup)
- Garlic powder (1 tbsp)
- Sriracha (2 tbsp)
- Cilantro chopped (optional)
Wash and remove any excess fat from the chicken wings (I usually buy organic and they’re pretty clean). Place the wings in a shallow dish to marinate and add the steak seasoning, soy sauce, garlic powder and Sriracha. Move around so they’re all covered with seasoning. Do not add salt, soy sauce has a more than sufficient amount of salt. Allow the wings to marinate for at least 30 minutes or longer, overnight would be best. Remove from the fridge about 10 minutes before you’re ready to grill so the wings can come to room temperature.
Prepare the honey drizzle – add about ¼ cup honey and 1 tbsp Sriracha and set aside.
Pre-heat the barbeque, once the thermometer reaches the desired temperature grill the wings for about 10-12 minutes (or until done).
Once the wings are cooked, drizzle with the honey Sriracha mixture and sprinkle with cilantro. I must say these came out mighty delicous and flavorful! Enjoy these tasty bits as an appetizer or accompany with a delicious grilled corn on the cob!
What is Sriracha? It’s a type of hot sauce used in Asian foods. From my little knowledge (and research) the one in the clear plastic bottle with the green lid isn’t as authentic as others. I can believe that; either way it packs flavor and adds the right amount of heat to any food!
