The football season is ending and the Super Bowl is only a few weeks away. When I saw this Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Wings Recipe I figured it would be great on a Super Bowl Party menu. I have prepared a lot of chicken wing recipes and I think this has to be one of the best. The honey mustard blends perfectly with the wings, the orange zest gives a hint of orange flavor, and then the added flavor from the grill makes these chicken wings delicious. This is a simple recipe but there is quite a bit of prep time because of having to marinate the chicken wings. The recipe calls for 30 minutes of marinade time, but overnight is better if you are going to be grilling them in the afternoon. I planned on serving these in the evening so I started the marinade first thing in the morning, and it worked out really well. The amount of Honey Mustard sauce the recipe makes coats the chicken wings nicely, but it is nice to make up a little extra for dipping, although I don’t think it’s really necessary.
If you have a game day party planned, or a get together with friends, fire up the grill and put this Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Wings Recipe on the menu-it’s delicious. Enjoy
