Don't Put It Away Quite Yet

Yep, autumn is here. We already established that on Monday. And for many of you I know that means the end of grilling season, but in this house it never ends. That's right. We are those crazy people are stand outside in our snow boots to grill a good steak in the dead of winter. In fact, we have been known to grill in a blizzard. An actual blizzard!! While the snow fell at an alarming rate, our neighbors were outside trying to keep up with shoveling, they were all jealous of the smells coming from our backyard, as the T-bones cooked to perfection!

So if you're like us, and the falling of the leaves has no reflection on the use of your grill, today's recipe will totally excite you. But don't worry, if your grill is all tucked away until next spring, there is also an oven option noted in the recipe! 

We love chicken wings. Buffalo. Barbecue. They are all scrumptious to us. And when I was a teenager, there was a local Chinese restaurant that had these amazing lunch specials that included a bunch of appetizers with each entree, one being a glazed chicken drummette (the small piece of the wing) that would have you licking your fingers when you were done. These are the closest thing to that I've had in years. In fact, Adam described them as "Asian barbecue". Sweet like barbecue, but with some of the best Asian flavors around, soy and ginger. 

If you are grilling this weekend, these are a definite must. Maybe for the big game? I would love to see these at a big tailgating party! Or if you want to stay inside, see the note above the oven. Either way, they are yummy, and easy, two things that are always welcome, winter, spring, summer or fall!

Asian Glazed Wings
2 lbs. chicken wings, separated into 2 pieces each
2 TBS all purpose seasoning, your favorite brand
2 TBS honey
2 TBS soy sauce
1 cup vegetable juice
1 tsp. ground ginger
Garlic Salt to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cooking Spray

In a large bowl combine vegetable juice, honey, soy sauce and ginger. Set aside. Sprinkle wings with seasoning, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes. When ready, preheat grill to medium-high. Spray wings with cooking spray. Sear on both sides, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. For the last 10 minutes baste with sauce on both sides many times. 
*NOTE* These can also be cooked in the oven. Follow directions, but roast on a baking sheet in 400 degree oven for 20 minutes, and then baste and cook for another 20 minutes, basting often.
