Chicken Wings of Goodness

I made these on Sunday and WOW – they were good. I’m so used to wings that are breaded and/or sauced. Well, I can’t have that stuff anymore due to the wheat/gluten thing, so have shied away from them.

I decided on Sunday that I was making wings as our family dinner with various sides. Instead of a sauce, I used a dry rub and grilled. Holy sh*t this was good.  I also made an awesome dip which I have already posted on the site. Click here for that recipe. You definitely don’t need the sauce – the wings were delicious with or without!

Play with the spices – go heavy on the stuff you like. Enjoy!

  • 2 + pounds wings
  • olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp of each: cumin, ground cayenne pepper, paprika, chipotle, onion powder, garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsbp garlic salt, pepper
  • Mix all spices really well in a bowl
  1. line your baking sheet with tin foil
  2. brush with olive/coconut oil, using a silicone brush
  3. preheat grill to approx. 350-375 degrees
  4. pour all the wings into a larger bowl and drizzle with some olive or coconut oil
  5. mix them up with your hands, use rubber gloves if you want, get them good and covered
  6. Next, take the wings a couple at a time and place in spice mix. Get them good and covered – don’t be afraid to get that rub on every area of the wing
  7.  arrange the wings on your baking sheet, and place on grill
  8. Leave them on the grill for at least 5-7 minutes before turning, and then another 5-7 minutes.
  9. Our grill was super hot on one side from the drippings – and that charred those wings (you’ll see in the pic). But – everyone loved them charred! The texture worked with the spice!

When done (cut open a couple to make sure) serve with the dipping sauce. ENJOY!
