I threw a party over the weekend (for my birthday!) and we grilled up these chicken wings, along with an assortment of many other grill-friendly foods I'll be sharing with you over the coming weeks. So stay tuned for those!
This chicken was perfect. The flavors mixed together just right, to give it a nice mix of the sweet and spicy. Neither overwhelmed the other. Even picky 4-year olds were gobbling it down and requesting more. If that's not a definition of a cooking win, I don't know what is!

- 4 lbs chicken wings (1 large frozen bag from Walmart was used here)
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
- 5 heaping Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1-2 tsp chili powder (depending on the heat you want)
- 2 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp pepper
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
Combine all but the wings in a bowl. Place the wings into a large ziplock bag and pour the seasoning mixture over the wings. Seal the bag up, getting as much air as possible out. Mix thoroughly, letting the seasoning coat all the pieces. Let it sit for about 3-5 hours, mixing it around about every hour or so. Grill on a hot grill (medium heat) for about 5 minutes per side, until cooked thoroughly.
