Here is a simple way to prepare chicken wings for the BBQ. The warm spices in our Arabian Baharat are an excellent alternative to the usual mild, medium and hot Buffalo style wings. Grilling is half the fun, grab a brewskie, a couple of friends and stand around watching the magic. Serve with celery and carrot sticks and your favourite blue cheese dip.
2 lbs Chicken Wings
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp Arabian Baharat
Put the wings in a large ziplock bag, sprinkle with salt and Arabian Baharat. Massage spices into the wings until they are well coated. Let rest in the fridge a couple of hours.
Pre-heat the BBQ for 10 minutes, scrape clean and give it a spray with vegetable oil. Arrange the wings on the grill and reduce heat to medium. Cook the wings for about 20 minutes turning frequently to avoid flare-ups.
Arrange on a platter and serve with carrot & celery sticks and blue cheese dip (recipe follows).
Blue Cheese Dip
I never measure when I make this... so please adjust to your own taste!
1/4 cup (or more) blue cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup (ish) mayonnaise
1/2-1 tsp mirin
1/2-1 tsp rice vinegar
Grind of black pepper
Combine about half the cheese with a bit of the mayo, microwave for 30 seconds until cheese is melted. (I find this helps make the dip cheesier!) Stir together and add the rest of the mayo, mirin, vinegar and black pepper. Stir in the remaining blue cheese. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
