Football season has arrived! This means lots of wings, heroes and chips and dip eating  and not to mention summer is pretty much over. While the weather is still pleasant, this recipe is perfect for the grill and easy enough that anyone can make it.

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to have the tastiest wings you’ve ever eaten. Also be prepared to make extra because there won’t be any left.

This recipe is totally flexible, meaning you can add as much and as little of these ingredients as you want to.


  • 4½ – 5 pounds chicken wingettes or wings

  • ¼  cup of yellow mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  1. Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the the ingredients Pour over chicken and make sure it’s evenly coated, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or more but no more than 12 hours.

  2. Heat your grill to 425°F, carefully rub oil onto the grill grates.

  3. Place the chicken on the grill, leaving enough space between the pieces to turn. You want to get a nice charred grill mark on each side (this will crisp the skin).

  4. Reduce the heat to about 375°F, cover, and continue to cook for about 25 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the wings has reached 160° – 165°F.

  5. Combine the mustard, honey, melted butter, and rice wine vinegar. Toss the wings in the sauce to coat. Serve hot.


  1. Mix all ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Cook on low heat about 15 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. Do taste before cooking sauce ,brushing or tost wings in sauce feel free to add any ingredient you feel necessary.

Remember cooking is always to taste, so play around with the ingredients until the flavor you desire.
