Cooking Instructions
  • 1 lb fresh organic chicken wings, cleaned

    1 cup ketchup, low-sodium

    1/2 cup beer (your favorite)

    1/2 cup honey

    1/3 cup onion, grated

    2/3 cup rice vinegar

    1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

    1 tablespoon yellow mustard

    1 tablespoon chipotle in adobo sauce, minced

    4-5 dried apricot

    3 tablespoons Judson Todd Allen’s CHEF BLEND Hot Sauce

    1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

    1 tablespoon garlic powder

    1 tablespoon onion powder

    1/2 tablespoon black pepper

    1 teaspoon fresh parsley, finely chopped

  • Preheat charcoal grill for medium heat (350-400 degree F).

    In a medium heavy pot, add all ingredients. Over medium-high heat, whisk to fully combine. Cook for about 10 minutes.

    Remove sauce, let cool and add to a heat protected blender.  Blend sauce until smooth.

    Transfer sauce back to the pot over a medium-high heat and reduce sauce down until thickened while stirring frequently.

    Use approximately ½ cup of sauce to marinade chicken wings.  Transfer to heated grill and cook for 10-15 minutes eat or until a beautiful charred crust has formed and chicken is fully cooked.

    Remove wings from grill and place in a large mixing bowl.  Add ½ cup of BBQ sauce and parsley and toss.  Serve with grilled carrots and peppers.
