Sweet & Sticky Honey Garlic Chicken Wing recipe
If you enjoy the sweet and sticky flavor of honey garlic then you'll really enjoy this Grilled Chicken Wing recipe.
There's a quick marinade to pre-season the wings before going on the grill and then the thick and rich honey garlic basting and dipping sauce that get's slathered on while grilling.
Serves: 4 - 6 (24 split wings)
Prep time: 15 minutes
For best results marinate 4 hours up to overnight.
Place the chicken wings in a plastic resealable bag and pour in the marinade.
Seal and refrigerate 4 hours up to overnight.
Bring to a gentle boil then reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes.
If you want thicker sauce then combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1/4 cup hot water and stir until the cornstarch is dissolved.
Pour the cornstarch/water mixture into the honey garlic sauce and stir well to combine. Continue simmering several minutes until the sauce begins to thicken.
If you're adding more cornstarch to make the sauce even thicker you should wait several minutes between each addition as cornstarch doesn't react immediately.
Cover and remove from heat.
Preheat the grill to 400F - 450F.
When the grill reaches cooking temperature place the wings on the grill.
As they're cooking keep moving them around the grill and flip each wing to ensure all sides are getting evenly grilled.
Pour some of the honey garlic dipping sauce into a separate bowl for basting (otherwise your basting brush may contaminate the dipping sauce).
About 5 minutes before they're finished cooking begin basting each wing with the honey garlic dipping sauce.
Remove the wings from the grill and serve immediately.
