Serves: 4 - 6 (24 split wings)

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

Direct Heat
400F - 450F

For best results marinate 4 hours up to overnight.

What you'll need:

  • 24 chicken wings (split)

    For the marinade:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic (from a jar works well)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

    For the basting sauce/dipping sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 6 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger

  • 1/4 cup hot water (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch (optional)


    marinating chicken wings

    Step 1:
    Combine all the marinade ingredients in a medium glass bowl and mix well.

    Place the chicken wings in a plastic resealable bag and pour in the marinade.

    Seal and refrigerate 4 hours up to overnight.


    make honey garlic sauce

    Step 2:
    Combine the first 6 ingredients of the honey garlic basting/dipping sauce in a medium sauce pan.

    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.

    Step 3:
    Clean and oil the bbq grates and prepare for direct heat cooking.

    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.
    Continue basting each wing and turning them over - they should be getting nicely browned and very sticky.

    Remove the wings from the grill and serve immediately.

    Enjoy!
