Wow, these sweet and savory orange chicken wings do not disappoint. After marinating, they grill to perfection. The sauce has a very slight Asian feel and caramelizes on the wings making them sticky and sweet. We loved dipping the grilled chicken wings in the extra sauce for a punch of orange flavor. Perfect for any occasion, wing lovers will swoon over these.

    Preheat your grill on medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 20 min or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Brushing grilled wings with the sticky orange glaze.
    Remove the chicken from the grill and put it on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Turn oven on low broil with rack lowered. Brush glaze over chicken wings.
  • Broiling the glazed wings until slightly brown and bubbly.
    Put into the oven. WATCH carefully. This should take about 4 or 5 minutes depending on the broiler. Remove from oven when the glaze is bubbly and slightly turning color.
