Bring the Caribbean home with Jamika's super easy grilled Jerk chicken wings. After marinating in a sweet, spicy, tangy sauce for a few hours, the wings crisp up nicely on the grill and pair perfectly with a quick BBQ sauce mixture.
Jerk Spice Marinade: 2 teaspoons Ground allspice 2 teaspoons Garlic powder 1 teaspoon Cinnamon 2 tablespoons Cayenne pepper 3 tablespoons Sugar 1 teaspoons Dried parsley 1 teaspoons Black pepper 2 tablespoons Kosher salt 1 teaspoon Ground ginger 1 teaspoons Smoked paprika 1/2 Bunch of green onions 1/4 cup Dijon mustard 4 Scotch bonnet peppers 1 Lime, juiced 1 Orange, juiced 3 pounds Chicken wings Jerk BBQ Sauce: 1 tablespoon Jerk spice (reserved from above) 1/4 cup Orange or pineapple juice 1 cup BBQ sauce of choice
Blend Jerk spices, green onions, mustard, lime juice, and orange juice in a blender or food processor. Place chicken wings in a plastic bag and pour in marinade. Refrigerate for 4–24 hours.
Heat grill to approximately 350˚F. Place chicken on grill and cook 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the wings. Turn wings throughout cooking time to avoid burning. Once the chicken is cooked to 165˚F internally, remove from heat.
Combine all of the ingredients for the BBQ sauce and serve alongside the chicken.
