Some Canadians enjoy grilling all winter. They make an elaborate set-up by moving the barbecue inches from a patio door and creatively draping extension cords from afar to provide the light needed to cook in the dark. It may sound like an endurance test but there is something about the taste of grilled food that people love.
For the fair weather barbecuers the time is now. This is the season to cook everything and anything on the grill. Some of your family favourite chicken recipes are transferable to chicken wings and to cooking on the grill. Here are a few of my favourite recipes cooked inside in winter and outside in summer. They would all work on chicken wings.
If crispy wings is what you are after then try this method. When my teenage son wanted to learn to eat more heat we experimented with chicken wing recipes and this is now our go to method. Sprinkling the raw wings with baking powder and spices creates a crispy coating as they cook. The wings can be served right off the grill with sauce on the side for dipping or simply toss them in a big bowl with the sauce and enjoy. Finger lickin’ good!
Last summer I wrote a post about the reusable grilling sheet. The idea is brilliant; a heat-resistant, reusable sheet that goes on top of the grill yet still allows food to brown. Wash and reuse. Cut to any size you need. This is the perfect invention for people concerned about cross contamination. You can read more about them in this post, you can buy one at a barbecue or kitchen store or on Amazon.
So, what’s cooking in your backyard?
