Grilled chicken wings glazed with a sweet and fiery gingered soy-apricot sauce.
4 pounds chicken wings, tips removed, and cut at the joint
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup apricot preserves
2 garlic cloves, mashed
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Juice from one lime, about 2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons chopped chives
Fresh lime wedges for accompaniment
- Season wings with salt. Heat grill to medium high.
- In the bowl of a food processor (small if available), combine preserves, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, lime juice, vinegar, and cumin; process until smooth. Add chives.
- Place wings on the grill and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Turn, and grill for another 5 to 6 minutes. With a pastry brush or spoon, brush the sauce on the wings. Cook for about 1 minute, and turn. Repeat on other side of wings. Cook for another 1 minute. Wings should register 170°F (76.6°C) when tested with an instant read thermometer.
