Herb Marinated Grilled Chicken Wings
Grilled chicken wings take on Italian flavors when they are marinated in fresh herbs and lemon and then grilled to crispy perfection.
Servings 4 servings
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs, such as oregano, rosemary, parsley, sage, and thyme
- 1 tbsp kosher salt
- 2 tsp lemon zest
- 3 lb chicken wings
In a gallon sized resealable bag combine the oil, garlic, herbs, salt, and lemon zest. Add the chicken and thoroughly coat the wings with the marinade. Refrigerate for 8 hours or up to 24 hours.
Heat your grill.
Once the grill is hot, reduce the heat to medium, add the wings, flat side down, and grill covered for 7-8 minutes, or until the wings are browned and marked on that side.
Then turn them and grill for another 7-8 minutes. The wings should be well browned and crispy and the meat fully cooked through when you take them off.
- Type of wings: I used whole wings in the recipe, but wing portions will work too.
- Herb Mixture: The exact herb mixture is flexible depending on what herbs you have available. I use mostly oregano and rosemary and then add in little bits of whatever else is around. Also, lemon thyme is especially nice if you have that.
- Grill Safety: The grill will sometimes flare up when you first add the wings since they are coated in olive oil. If you have more than the occasional flare, lower the heat to low for the first couple of minutes and then bring it back to medium when the grill calms down.
