Grilled Chicken Wings With Creamy Basil-Jalapeño Dressing
by Johnny Loua, Chef, Seattle, Washington
Prepping these wings ahead of time gives them plenty of time to marinate,
so they’re ready to grill when you are.
- 2 pounds Smart Chicken party wings
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
In the bowl of a food processor, combine salt, garlic, cumin, and thyme and blend into a powder. Season the wings with the spice mix and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat a grill to 350°F.
Toss the wings with olive oil and grill until cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
- Basil-Jalapeño Dressing
- 1 cup fresh basil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 jalapeño
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup olive oil
In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients except olive oil and blend into a smooth paste, then slowly drizzle in olive oil to emulsify. Adjust seasoning with salt and serve with wings.
