Just in time for the 4th of July, here is a simple recipe perfect for any backyard barbecue. Honey Mustard-Glazed Chicken Wings, adapted from Grill Every Day by Diane Morgan, will appeal to children--of all ages--who love to eat with their hands and lick their fingers.
- 1/2 cup honey mustard
- 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon dried tarragon, crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more for seasoning
- 16 chicken wings (about 3 3/4 pounds)
- Kosher or sea salt
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill on medium-high.
In a small bowl, combine the mustard, 1/4 cup of the olive oil, the tarragon, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and mix well. Set aside.
Place the wings in a large bowl. Rub the wings all over with the 3 tablespoons olive oil and then season them lightly with salt and pepper.
Oil the grill grate. Place the chicken wings directly over the medium-hot fire and cover. Sear on one side, about 5 minutes. Turn, re-cover, and sear on the other side, about 5 minutes longer. Brush the wings all over with the mustard sauce and continue to grill, basting and turning the wings, until they are bronzed and the juices run clear when the thickest part of the wing is pierced with a knife, about 10 minutes longer.
Pile the wings on a warmed serving plate. Serve immediately.
