This recipe was a spur of the moment creation, so it had to come together fast. Thank goodness, everyone loved them! We have a new favorite wing recipe! Easy to make, too, because there are only three ingredients in the rub. The wings are golden brown, tender and juicy. No barbecue sauce needed. These are definitely party and family friendly, so make a double batch because they won't last long! Enjoy my humble recipe!
First, make the rub. Mix all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and pour into a small shaker.
Pat the prepared wings very dry with paper towels so the rub will stick, and place them in a ziploc bag. Using the shaker, shake the rub very generously onto the chicken in the ziploc bag, then turn the pieces over and repeat. Close the ziploc bag and gently knead the chicken pieces so the seasoning coats each piece evenly. Leave the chicken pieces on the counter in the bag for 20 minutes before grilling. It helps the rub to stick.
Grease your grill grate so the wings won't stick. I used an indoor grill. Adjust grate a little higher than normal. When the wings were a golden brown, I turned them over and tented the wings with tinfoil to hold in the heat. Cook until the wings are done. They turn out perfectly. You can also use an outdoor barbecue with a lid. Be sure not to overcook the chicken wings.
Serve with carrot and celery sticks and Blue cheese dressing for dipping (or eat them without dipping).
