I made these marinated wings on the fly (pun intended) for a Sunday afternoon cookout. I didn't have enough of the one type of marinade, so I made my own. This particular set of wings was last on the grill, and my baby brother was in charge of watching them. He also ended up eating almost all of them.

The marinade for these grilled chicken wings creates juicy, flavor-packed wings. Marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, red chili flakes, lime juice, and soy sauce, the wings are citrusy, savory, and a touch spicy. Grilling adds an extra flavor boost. A great addition to a tailgate or cookout.
