So a few weeks ago I posted a photo of some wings I made on my Instagram and a bunch of people asked for the recipe. I was high. I’m not exactly sure how I made them but this is pretty damn close – if not better than the other ones.
The first thing you want to do is marinate your chicken. I went with drumsticks instead of wings because they were on sale. I soak mine in pickle juice. Soak them for at least 4 hours. You can use Italian dressing or some other whacky shit if you’re skeptical of the pickle juice.
While the chicken marinates grill your pineapple up. I used canned slices. Typically I would have used fresh pineapple but I’m lazy.
Time to build a sauce. Basically going to make a ketchup based white trash bbq sauce:
• 1/2 Cup Ketchup
•4 Chopped Grilled Pineapple Slices
• 1/8 Cup Chopped Pickled Jalapeños
• 1/2 Tablespoon Maple Sizzurp
• Pinch of Crushed Red Pepper
• Pinch of Black Pepper
• 1/8 Cup Yellow Mustard
• 1/4 cup Pickled Jalapeño Juice (if you want a little more kick)
Mix well and refrigerate.
When your chicken has competed is marinating extravaganza, rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Season with a BBQ seasoning. I have a mason jar in my kitchen that I dump all my spices in when they get down to the end of the bottle…so I’m not really sure what’s in my seasoning.
Let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes after grilling before tossing a few pieces around at a time in your chicken slather sauce.
Plate up and garnish with more grilled pineapple and chopped pickled jalapeños.
