Sweet & Spicy Grilled Chicken Wings
Servings: 2
Sonoran style sweet and spicy chicken recipe. I use smoked sea salt in a grinder for my everyday salt. A two pound bag costs about $17.00 and lasts for about a year. I think it makes everything taste better.


  • 6 chicken wings, disjointed (12 pieces)
  • ½ cup spicy barbecue sauce

For Spice Rub


  • Secure the chicken and the spice rub ingredients in a resealable bag. Massage the spices into the chicken. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
  • Grill on medium, covered until cooked throughout.
  • Brush with barbecue sauce and let brown, about 2-5 minutes more.
