Recipe: Marmalade Marinated Woody Creek Wings
Marinating wings in a mix of yogurt and marmalade spiked with garlic and jalapeno will take your BBQ wings to the next level. The sugar in the marmalade adds a lot of char to the grilled wings, which is what tasters in our test kitchen loved about this dish.
For the marinade:
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1/4 cup orange marmalade
- 2 Tbsp. lime juice
- 1 Tbsp. canola oil
- 1/4 cup grated onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
- 2 Tbsp. Woody Creek BBQ Seasoning
- 2 lbs. chicken wings
For the sauce:
- 4 Tbsp. water
- 4 Tbsp. white vinegar
- 3 Tbsp. Woody Creek BBQ Seasoning
- 1 1/2 cups ketchup
Place all marinade ingredients (except wings) in food processor and pulse until smooth. Place wings in a food storage bag, pour marinade over wings and stir to coat. Chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to overnight. Mix all sauce ingredients together in a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to grill wings. Preheat grill to medium-high. Remove wings from marinade mixture, shake off excess marinade from each wing before placing wings on grill. Grill until cooked through, turning frequently to avoid burning, about 15 min. When wings are a few minutes from being done, brush some of the sauce over each side of wings. Remove from grill and serve with remaining sauce on the side.
Serve with carrot and celery sticks and try them with a side of our Black & Bleu Cheese Dressing for dipping.
