Crispy Grilled Wings


Our kitchen is currently under construction again. This week, we’re having new lighting, lots of drywall work, tile, and the cabinets are being refinished. So instead of cooking inside, we’ve moved to the outside kitchen. I go in and sneak under the sheets of plastic sheeting and gather a few ingredients and tools and head to the back porch to make dinner. Last night I thawed some wings and we had these grilled  wings along with a simple spring salad.

Eating outside these past few days has been really enlightening. We’r’e not the type of family who eats at the dinner table and talks about the events of the day. We’ve always been one the kind of family that eats on the floor in front of the television. Bad, I know. Moving outside and eating at our little table on the porch has been so nice. There’s no television, no games or toys and no phone or tablet to pick up and check. The only annoyance is an incredibly hungry and overweight chocolate lab sitting beside the table with sad eyes wishing he could have people food too.

I can’t wait to share more kitchen photos with you soon. We’ve picked out just about everything, so now it’s just a matter of putting it all together and getting it done.

This is my go-to way to season chicken wings. We eat them as is, or dipped in buffalo wing sauce and ranch, or just ranch, or BBQ sauce. They’re so good.

    These look so ridiculously tasty! Can’t wait to be able to sit outside and eat dinner 🙂

  6. I love the non-distraction of eating outside, too. Being removed from all the things left undone inside just gives a bigger peace over the whole experience. I just wish it would quit snowing here (another 6″ last night, ugh!) so we could get outside! (Awesome wings!)

    My husband said these were the best wings ever!! I grilled them on 350 for 45 minutes because we wanted a nice char and a little extra crispiness!! Thank you!
