If you love spicy, and you love chicken wings, you are probably going to love these. I’m a wing fan, and I really enjoy experimenting with different seasonings and marinades. This one has a nice spicy zip from using chili sauce. If you like your wings like I do, you are going to want to check this one out.
Spicy Thai Chicken Wings
Here is what you will need:
20 chicken wings
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup oyster sauce
1/3 cup honey
3 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tbsp chili sauce
2 tbsp lime peel, grated
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Get yourself a large package of chicken wings. Cut each of the wings at the joint to make 3 separate pieces. You can throw out the tip, but I like to save and freeze them to make chicken stock.
Using a large mixing bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Make sure to mix it thoroughly. Put a 1/4 cup of this marinade into a small bowl and put aside. Take the rest of the marinade and put in a large sealable plastic storage bag along with the chicken wings. Turn the bag several times to coat the chicken. Put the bag in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. If you can leave them overnight.
Set up your gas or charcoal grill for direct grilling over medium heat. Oil the grill grate and place the wings over the heat. Cook for approximately 45 minutes while basting with the 1/4 reserved marinade. Turn the wings once about halfway through grilling.
Once the chicken is done the internal temperature should be at least 165F when taken with an instant read thermometer. Discard the remaining marinade and serve the wings immediately.
If you do a lot of basting of you grilled foods like I do, you are going to want to have a basting set. I like to use a cast iron basting pot with a silicone brush. I like the cast iron pot because if I need to heat the marinade it’s as easy as just setting the pot on the grill. Here is the basting set I use.
