Grilled Chicken Wings

We’ve fried our chicken wings and we’ve baked our chicken wings, but there’s a special place in our heart for these super easy grilled chicken wings. They cook up fast , they’re coated in a seriously delicious spice rub, and they’ve got a zingy dipping sauce you’ll want to eat with everything. Not a fan of horseradish? Sub in minced sweet onion, roughly chopped capers, or a splash of your favorite hot sauce.

Zest of 1 lemon
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. cayenne
2 lb. chicken wings
Vegetable oil, for grill

1/2 c. mayonnaise
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. horseradish
2 tsp. freshly chopped chives
1 tsp. hot sauce, such as Crystal

Make wings: In a medium bowl, whisk together lemon zest, salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, and cayenne. Pat chicken wings dry and place in a large bowl. Add spice mixture and toss to coat.
Heat grill or grill pan to medium heat. Oil grill grates with vegetable oil. Add wings and cook, stirring occasionally, until skin is crisp and meat is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, make sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together mayo, lemon juice, mustard, horseradish, chives, and hot sauce.
Serve wings hot with dipping sauce.
