Grilled Mojito Chicken Wings

"The tangy cilantro-lime dipping sauce for these grilled chicken wings is inspired by the trendy cocktail. Be sure to include on your next tailgate menu!"

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 18 minutes Serves: 10


For the wings: 

1 package McCormick® Grill Mates® Mojito Lime Marinade

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey

1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Red Pepper, Crushed

3 pounds chicken wing pieces


For the Mojito Lime Sauce: 

1/2 cup agave nectar or honey

1/2 cup fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Mint Flakes

Mix marinade mix, lime juice, oil, agave nectar and red pepper in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for brushing. Place chicken in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 15 minutes or longer for extra flavor.

Meanwhile, for the Mojito Lime Sauce, mix all ingredients in medium bowl. Set aside. Remove chicken wings from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.

Grill chicken wings over medium-high heat 15 to 18 minutes or until cooked through, turning frequently. Brush with reserved marinade halfway through cooking. Discard any remaining marinade.

Toss chicken wings with Mojito Lime Sauce before serving.
