Had a busy weekend…Soccer and then a trip down to the boat on saturday. Sunday we did a walk to benefit the March of Dimes organization following a training run Sunday morning on the C&O bike path.
As a funny aside…While running on the C&O towpath, I passed a few people that looked seemingly fit and like they could run much faster than they were. In fact, some were walking. So when I got back to my house I looked up what they could be doing (since they had race numbers on). Turns out they were at about mile 95 of a 24 hour 100 mile race, which would explain why they looked miserable. So much for thinking my 6 mile run was impressive.
Anyway, I grilled up some fantastic wings this weekend, modifying a recipe I found on the allrecipes website. Basically marinaded the wings (purchased from Wegmans) in 50/50 soy sauce and italian salad dressing for 24 hours +. Then coated liberally with Dizzy Pig Tsunami Spin Rub and grilled over direct heat at 350. Half I kept as is and the other half I coated with a Frank’s hot sauce/melted butter sauce.
Needless to say these were both OnPoint. Would definitely make again. For a more detailed recipe see below.
- 4 lbs chicken wings
- ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
- ½ cup robusto Italian salad dressing
- 1 TBS minced garlic
- ~2 TBS Dizzy Pig Tsunami Spin Rub
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup Frank's buffalo wing hot sauce
- Cut up fresh wings (4lbs) into the three sections (wing tips are discarded or saved for chicken stock).
- wash well under cold running water then pat dry
- add wings to 1 gallon zip-lock bag and add the soy sauce, italian dressing and garlic (which was premixed in a separate bowl)
- marinade for at least 12-24 hours (longer the better), turning bag occasionally to evenly distribute the marinade.
- remove from marinade and sprinkle liberally with Dizzy Pig Tsunami Spin Rub
- Add to preheated grill (350 degrees) to well oiled grates
- grill ~10-15 minutes per side but watching carefully to avoid too much charring.
- when done, remove from grill and either eat as is or coat with the hot sauce mixture.
- the hot sauce is prepared by melting butter with hot sauce under low heat.
