    • 3 Pound chicken wings

    • 2 Tablespoon vegetable oil

    Make the rub: In a small bowl, combine the paprika, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, cayenne, onion powder, granulated garlic, and celery seeds.

    Ingredients

    • 1 Tablespoon paprika

    • 2 Teaspoon brown sugar

    • 1 Teaspoon salt

    • 1 Teaspoon cayenne pepper

    Sprinkle the rub over the chicken and toss gently to coat the wings.

    Arrange the wings directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and grill the wings, turning once, until the skin is crisp and golden brown and the chicken is cooked through, 35-40 minutes.

    Meanwhile, make the sauce: Melt the butter in a small saucepan on the stove top over medium-low heat in a small saucepan. Add the jalapeños and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and hot sauce. Remove the pot from the heat and cover to keep the sauce warm until ready to serve. (If desired, transfer the sauce to a blender and blend until smooth.)

    • 1/2 Cup cilantro leaves

    • 1/2 Cup hot sauce
