You just knew this was coming right?
To tell you the truth, I have become somewhat complacent when it comes to chicken these days. All I do is sprinkle jerk seasoning on any cut of chicken that is available and go on with my usual business.
No complaints so far, I even made some of these jerk wings to take to the beach and it was a hit with everyone, even those with discerning palates (kids).
I know kids go crazy over anything wings, as long as they have dipping sauce to go with it.
I completely forget about the kids and brought along pepper sauce instead. No one asked for a dipping sauce, which was a great relief.
If you love this chicken wings recipe, you are going to go crazy for these Sweet Sticky Spicy Hot Wings they are grilled and smothered in hot and sweet sauce. Finger-lickin’ good!
