Sun’s out, grill’s out! The one thing I love about summertime is all the grilling. Not even necessarily me firing up my own grill. I love finishing up a long day’s work, retiring to the back patio (retiring… yikes that makes me sound old, doesn’t it?) with a glass of whatever I whip up for cocktail hour, watching my pup go nuts chasing bees and smelling charcoals burning somewhere in the distance.

The smell of charcoals or a good fire just makes me sink into that summer lazy feeling with all my might.

I’m slowly making it through the long list of my favorite things to grill. It started with just grilling off some veggies one night, then moved to that lemon ricotta and kale flatbread, and now I’m moving onto wings (and something else later this week too, so get excited!).

Wings in the oven are all good and fine, but when you throw them on the grill, something happens to them to take them to the next level. It’s that fire that really gets the chicken real juicy and tender in the middle.

Then you slather on the sauce… Yes, you might have to spend a couple extra minutes cleaning those grill grates after these wings, but I promise the effort is well worth it.

The sticky sweet and spicy glaze that coats these wings is so addictive. It hits all the right taste bud spots and the hit of fresh cilantro on top leaves you with a freshness that is unbelievably satisfying.
