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.

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!
