Salt and Pepper Grilled Chicken Wings

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"I love to order salt and pepper squid at our local Chinese take-out restaurant. I thought the spice blend would be fantastic on grilled chicken wings. I order the Szechuan peppercorns online and roast them as I need them. Don't worry if there is more spice blend than you need, it keeps for quite some time in a sealed container and you'll find yourself sprinkling it on a variety of different things."

  1. Roast salt and peppercorns in a dry skillet over medium-low heat until salt starts to turn yellow and peppercorns become fragrant and begin to pop open, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Brush chicken wings with peanut oil. Grill wings over indirect heat, turning occasionally, until juices run clear and an instant-read thermometer reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Place the salt and pepper blend in a mortar and grind with a pestle until coarsely ground. Place the grilled chicken wings in a large bowl. Sprinkle in 2 teaspoons, or more depending on taste, of the spice blend; toss to coat.

These were pretty good and this is one I'd make again. I think the chicken could have used some seasoning prior to going on the grill so I will try that next time.
