Grilled wings are a healthier alternative to fried wings, but just as satisfying. Use your favorite cayenne pepper sauce and serve these with a chunky blue cheese dressing. Be sure to have hot crusty bread for dipping in the delicious wing sauce. Grilling the wings is also a wonderful way to showcase any other flavorful sauce.


  1. Heat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Fold the chicken wings, hooking the claw inward to make a little triangle.
  3. Spread the wings out on a large baking sheet and season generously with Kosher salt and pepper.
  4. When the grill is hot, grill the wings 15-20 minutes, flipping occasionally.
  5. In a small saucepan melt butter and add hot sauce over medium-low heat.
  6. When the wings are charred and fully cooked, place in a large bowl and pour the butter mixture over the wings and toss until well coated.
  7. Serve with chunky blue cheese dressing, celery, and carrots.
