Old Bay Grilled Chicken Wings

These are soooooooooo good, and perfect for watching football on a Sunday.  Chris and I, being from Maryland, practically grew up on Old Bay.  We have added it to many things, but when Chris threw some Old Bay on some chicken wings, my love for him grew even deeper.  Just kidding, but these are good, finger licking good as they say in the south.

I love the idea of grilling them because it is a much healthier alternative to frying them.  The key to grilling them is you have to watch how strong of a flame you are using.  The fat tends to drip down and cause flare ups as it liquifies.  

Even if you are not from Maryland you should still have a canister of Old Bay as one of your kitchen staples.  And then, when you are watching football and grilling on a beautiful fall day, throw some of it on your chicken wings and enjoy! 

serves 2

12 chicken wings
1/4 cup Old Bay seasoning


Pre-heat grill.  Pat dry chicken wings with a paper towel.  Liberally cover wings with Old Bay.  Marinade the wings for at least 30 minutes.  Throw the wings on the grill at medium heat for 2 minutes on each side so skin gets crispy.  Reduce heat to low and grill for another 10-15 minutes.

  1. Jess, cant wait to try these. They would go perfect with a side of Blue CHEESE Dressing! Yum!

  2. Yes, you're right!! What a great idea! I am surprised Chris hasn't already thought of that... he's the big blue cheese lover in the house :)
