Everyone’s favourite game-day appetizer takes a leaner approach here. The wings are skinned, grilled with a flavourful dry rub, and basted with a hot sauce glaze that uses far less butter than traditional buffalo wing recipes. The heat level is medium-spicy.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Uncooked skinless chicken wing(s) with bone

1½ pound(s), separated into drumettes and flats, about 18 pieces

Chili powder

1 tsp(s)

Garlic powder

1 tsp(s)

Kosher salt

½ tsp(s)

Black pepper

½ tsp(s)

Hot pepper sauce

2½ tbsp(s)

Regular butter

1 tbsp(s), melted

Honey

1 tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Spray grill rack with nonstick spray. Preheat grill to medium heat or prepare medium fire.
  2. Place wings in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle spice mixture over wings, and toss to coat. Arrange wings on grill rack, close lid, and grill 15 minutes, turning occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine hot sauce, butter, and honey. Brush glaze over wings. Grill 5 minutes or until cooked through, turning after 3 minutes to brush other side with glaze.
  4. Serving size: 3 pieces

Notes

For less spice, go lighter on the hot sauce; for more, add some cayenne pepper. To make skinning the wings a little easier, use paper towels to get a good grip.
