Lemon Garlic Grilled Chicken Wings

Share the Recipe

These lemon garlic wings are a must-try. By first grilling the wings over low, indirect heat the skin and fat render. Then, we move the wings to a hotter, more direct heat until they become golden brown and slightly charred.

Ingredients for 3-4 servings

2 pounds chicken wings
3 cloves garlic, crushed with the side of a large knife or minced
Zest of 1 lemon, peeled or finely grated
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (1 to 2 lemons)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, we use kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano cheese for serving, optional

1/4 cup mayonnaise, try our homemade mayonnaise recipe
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
3 to 6 dashes hot sauce (we love Cholula)
