Grilled Chicken Wings Three Ways

Grilled Chicken Wings Three Ways

By Traeger Kitchen

Making a variety of sauces (each assembled in just a couple minutes) to toss cooked wings into is a super easy way to offer a choice of flavourings. Here we have a fruity and fragrant BBQ sauce, a take on bang bang sauce, and a tandoori spiced sauce. Save yourself a step and buy what are known as chicken party wings—wings sold already broken down into flats (also called wingettes) and drumettes (which look like tiny chicken legs). You can also butcher whole wings yourself; just discard the wing tip or save it for the soup pot.

    Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss the wings with the Traeger Anything Rub.

  • 6

    Place the wings directly on the grill grates. (To fit them all, you will need to use multiple grates at different levels or cook them in batches, depending on your grill model and the size of your grill.) Cook, flipping once about halfway through, until the skin is crisp, and the wings are cooked through (170°F to 175°F on an instant read thermometer), 35 to 45 minutes total.

    Divide the cooked and crispy thighs among the three different reserved sauces and toss to coat well. Top the tandoori wings with scallion and the BBQ wings with sesame seeds and serve all three with your favorite dipping sauces as desired. Enjoy
