Grilled Chicken Wings with Tamarind Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

Jennifer Causey
 2 3/4 pounds (12) chicken wings
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 1 teaspoon kosher salt
 1/2 teaspoon pepper
 2 cups Tamarind Chipotle Barbecue Sauce
  Sliced green onions
Step 1

Heat a grill to medium (350° to 400°). In a large, wide bowl, toss chicken with oil, salt, and pepper until evenly seasoned. Grill chicken, covered, turning every 10 minutes or so with tongs, until golden, 25 to 35 minutes.

Step 2

Set wings top side down. Generously brush with about 1/2 cup barbecue sauce. Grill, covered, about 3 minutes until sauce is somewhat set. Turn wings over and generously brush with another 1/2 cup or so of sauce. Grill, covered, until sauce is somewhat set, 2 to 3 more minutes. Meanwhile, put remaining sauce in a bowl.

Step 3

Set chicken on a platter and scatter green onions on top. Serve with sauce.
