Recipe: Grilled Jalapeño-Honey Chicken Wings

These sweet and spicy wings are kissed with smoke from the grill

With summer in full force, we're grilling everything, including chicken wings. In this recipe, we marinate the chicken with honey, minced jalapeños and lime zest for a sticky wing that has the perfect kick of spice with just a little bit of sweetness.

If you're a real spice fanatic, try using hot honey instead of regular to give your wings even more kick.
