With grilling season right around the corner, now is the perfect time to start gathering your favorite recipes! These Grilled Naked Wings are not just  ordinary wings…they are packed with flavor and with 3 Sauces to choose from, everyone will be happy!

We love Wings in our house, they are perfect for dinner, to serve at party and with March Madness Basketball coming soon, they are a perfect snack to enjoy during the game too!

There are 3 Sauces…one for every taste! Honey BBQ…the mild sauce, Sweet & Tangy…the sauce with a little kick and Asian Kick…the sauce for those that like it spicy!

Fire up the grill to cook these wings or throw them in the oven, either way the flavors are great!

Be sure to spray your grill with a little non-stick cooking spray. Doug added salt, pepper and Greek seasoning to them and placed them on a hot (400F) grill for 5 minutes and turned them and cooked an additional 5 minutes to get a good crisp on the skin. Then you’ll want to reduce the heat to medium (275F) and grill an additional 20-25 minutes until done, turning several times.

The cooking instructions above are for gas grills, if you are using a charcoal grill set your coals for indirect heat. Cook the wings for the first 10 minutes directly over the coals then move to the center of the grill for the remainder of the cooking time.

Serve them with one these sauces, but don’t let the list of ingredients scare you, they are easy to make, and if you store them in mason jars, they will transport easily for any party or get-together.

    These were the best wings I’ve ever had…my husband made them tonight and I don’t think I’ll ever want to eat wings out again…thanks for sharing this recipe. 🙂


  2. One of my husband’s favorite foods ever is wings – and your sauces look ah-mazing. I would love it if you shared on my blog hop, Makin’ You Crave Monday, over at MrsHappyHomemaker.com!!

  3. I’m not a wing fan but I love the idea of serving chicken tenders naked and offering your sauces. 🙂

  4. Thank you for sharing this. I love how you do 3 different sauces, so everyone is happy with what choices are there!
