Barbecued Hot Wings Recipe

"My husband can't get enough of these spicy chicken wings," notes Anita Carr of Cadiz, Ohio. "They're excellent appetizers at cookouts. We serve them with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 12 whole chicken wings (about 2-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 bottle (8 ounces) Italian salad dressing
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup hot pepper sauce
  • 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tips.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine salad dressing, pepper sauce and cayenne. Remove 1/2 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Place remaining sauce in a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • 3. Discard marinade. Grill wings, covered, over medium heat for 12-16 minutes, turning occasionally. Add butter to the reserved sauce; brush over wings.
  • 4. Grill, uncovered, 8-10 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting and turning several times. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
