Deb Keslar of Utica, Nebraska dresses up chicken wings with grill marks and a lively marinade to create a fantastic summertime appetizer that's sure to be a hit. “I like these wings hot, so I often add a little extra hot sauce,” Deb suggests.

    I have made these several times now. They are absolutely delicious. I usually marinate for a few hours or overnight to lock in the flavor. Have baked many times at 425 degrees for 1 hour. Turn after 30 minutes. Our favorite recipe for wings.....

    I make these wings all the time in the summer when I don't want to heat up the house by using the oven. They are quick and they taste really good. My husband asks for them at least once a month.
