Spicy Sweet Chicken Wings

Rather than frying in oil, we opt to grill our spicy sweet chicken wings in this appetizer recipe. Though still packed with that taste we love, grilling gives these wings a crunch without all the extra calories frying produces.


4 pounds chicken wings, approximately 24 - 30


1 cup apple cider

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons Worcestershire

2 tablespoons hot chili powder

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 teaspoon Tabasco

1 teaspoon salt

Ground pepper to taste


Combine marinade ingredients together and mix very well in a large bowl. In an extra large Ziploc bag, place the  chicken wings and add marinade over top.

Be sure to coat all chicken wings and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight before grilling.

When ready, remove wings from the bag with tongs and lie face down on a hot grill. Cook on one side for 2 - 3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes or until cooked through.
