Honey Jalapeño Chicken Wings & Drumsticks
Spicy jalapeño combined and a sweet honey sauce make these wings and drumsticks a “betcha can’t eat just one” flavor fest.
Preheat the grill to medium, 300-350°F. Place wood chips on top of the grill grates.
Place chicken on the grill. Close the lid and grill 20-25 minutes, turning chicken once after 10 minutes and basting intermittently with olive oil.
Combine all ingredients for the honey jalapeno barbecue sauce and set aside.
When the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 150°F (about 20 minutes), increase the grill temp to high. Liberally brush wings with barbecue sauce. Grill for an additional 10 minutes, brushing chicken every 2-3 minutes as sauce begins to caramelize.
Remove chicken from the grill and brush again with sauce. Place under a tin foil tent for 3-5 minutes.
Combine all ingredients for the blue cheese dip in a bowl and set aside.
Serve the wings with carrots, celery and creamy blue cheese dip.
