Grilled sweet and spicy barbecue chicken wings packed full of flavour. Serve these delicious chicken wings as an appetiser or as part of a meal.
Summer is all about barbecues. I live for grilled steaks marinated with suya pepper, seafood, and chicken. Nothing beats the smokey flavour that coal barbecues adds to meats grilled over it.
When it comes to barbecued meats, grilled chicken wings is always a winner. The preparation of the chicken doesn’t take long and can be marinated with vast array of spices and sauces.
There was this debate not to long ago about whether to rinse or wash chicken or not. I have always rinsed my chicken, and will keep doing it. I start off by soaking the chicken wings in a solution of water and lemon juice for a few minutes. The chicken wings are rinsed off with cold water and then left to dry off in a colander before seasoning. Dry the chicken wings with a kitchen towel if you are pressed for time.
To give the chicken wings flavour, I used an array of dried spices. I prefer to use dried spices when grilling chicken over a barbecue. Garlic powder, ginger powder, salt, black pepper and Schwartz seasoning were used to season the chicken and left to marinate for about an hour while the barbecue was being lit.
