This Grilled Thai Chicken Wings recipe is one of my favorites. I am a nut for wings, and I love almost all kinds. I just adore these because they are so flavorful and pack just a bit of heat. A nice char on the wings adds a depth to the flavor that is so good!
The marinade is what sets these wings off. Packed with amazing Thai flavors, it just makes the wings so tantalizing. Thinly sliced Asian red peppers give just enough heat to make it so good! The peppers can be found in well-stocked food markets, and Asian food markets.
Cooking these out on the grill are absolutely my favorite way to prepare these bad boys. But, you could certainly bake in them in a 375° F oven for about 45 minutes. Basting a couple times along the way.
I just can’t say enough about this Grilled Thai Chicken Wings recipe. If you love wings, then you gotta give these a try. This recipe is also good with chicken breasts and thighs, too. Grill until cooked through and serve with steamed rice! Nothing short of amazing!
