Crown Royal Wings

What’s In It:

⅓ cup honey, SueBee®

¼ cup soy sauce, Kikkoman®

2 tablespoons Thai chili sauce

1 packet (0.75-ounce) stir-fry seasoning, Sun Bird®

2 teaspoons crushed garlic, Gourmet Garden®

4 pounds chicken wing drumettes

3 scallions (green onions), finely chopped (optional)

¼ cup chopped peanuts, Planters® (optional)

How It Works:

In a large bowl, combine whisky, honey, soy sauce, chili sauce, stir-fry seasoning, and garlic. Add drumettes, tossing to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.

Set up grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking. Let drumettes stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Place on hot, oiled grill. Cook for 12 to 18 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally. Transfer chicken to a platter. Sprinkle with chopped scallions and peanuts (optional).
