Jerk Chicken Wings Recipe

Jerk chicken wings are perfect for summer grilling and make a great appetizer for parties. This is not a wing sauce but rather a marinade. If you have had jerk chicken before you would know it has a very unique flavor.  Some of the interesting flavors in the marinade are ground cloves, nutmeg and allspice. The chicken wings can be marinated anywhere from 4 hours to overnight. If you want the best flavor I would recommend overnight. This is a very easy recipe, simple marinade the wings and then cook them on the grill. Enjoy.

3lbs chicken wings
6 green onions (chopped)
1 onion (chopped)
1 jalapeño pepper (seeded and minced)
¾ cup soy sauce
½ cup distilled white vinegar
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon fresh thyme (chopped)
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground allspice

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a food processor combine green onions, onion, jalapeño pepper, soy sauce, vinegar, vegetable oil, brown sugar, thyme, ground cloves,  ground nutmeg and ground allspice. Blend until smooth.
Step 2: Place chicken wings into a bowl and pour the marinade over the wings. Toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight.
Step 3: Lightly grease grill grate. Place chicken wings onto the grill and cook turning as needed until chicken wings are fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees).
(Makes 4 Servings)

    These were CRAZY good.. I’ll say this though.. And not to contradict how they are originally intended.. I baked them.. 450 degrees for 40 – 45 minutes.. I didn’t turn them but I moved them at the 20 minute mark to prevent them from sticking… I just didn’t have time to grill them so I figured I’d give the oven a try and it worked great so just know that’s an option too.. Also, I only let them soak 4 hours because I thought of the idea at lunch so I’ll be anxious to see if the flavor profile intensifies when I give them a chance to rest overnight prior to cooking.. Regardless, these will be made again and again in our houselhold.. HOMERUN. Period. Thanks!
