Hot Lemonade Chicken Wings

These wings are great served hot off the grill, but they also make a nice addition to any picnic. Make a jug of ice-cold lemonade to take along.

Serves 8

3 lb chicken wings
6 oz frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp hot sauce
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp chopped fresh garlic
½ tsp salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Cut chicken wings into 3 pieces, using the meatier sections and saving the tips for stock.
In a shallow glass dish, stir together the remaining ingredients. Add chicken.
Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
Preheat barbecue to medium.
Place chicken pieces on oiled grill. Cook for 20-25 minutes, basting and turning frequently, until chicken is tender.

Nada’s Tips & Tricks: The family loved these wings – the marinating is important to get all the flavours into the wings. The day we planned on this barbecue, it was cold and rainy so I put them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes – they didn’t have the grill marks but were oh so tender!
