Chicken Wings for 4th of July BBQ

4th of July weekend is coming up in the US.  For those of you that are not from the United States, 4th of July is the US Independence Day, it is a holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.

The question is always what to server for the barbecues?  Folks always have hamburgers and hotdogs, but why not try something different?  Here are a few ideas from the past that I recommend:

Appetizer:
Guacamole (instead of salsa)

Main Course:
Turkey Burger with Yogurt Sauce (instead of hamburgers)
Meatballs  using the meatball Grill Basket from Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Sides:
Kugel (instead of macaroni and cheese)
Pizza Salad (instead of coleslaw)

Dessert:
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Strawberry Cake

One of my favorites is Chicken Wings.  It is easy, good, and great finger food.

This easy recipe was originally from The new basic Cookbook but in the book it calls for a few more ingredients as well as cooking the barbecue sauce.  I like this sauce better uncooked and simple.

You can marinate chicken breast in here, but my favorite with this BBQ sauce is chicken wings.

Enjoy!

 Chicken Wings with Barbecue Sauce

1 lbs of chicken wings
½ cup chopped onion
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup ketchup
½ cup rice vinegar
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup dark brown sugar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Mix all the ingredients together and add the chicken wings to the BBQ sauce.  If you want it spicier you can always add more cayenne pepper. You can leave the chicken wings in the sauce overnight or do it the same day, I prefer overnight.

Once you are ready heat up the grill and just lay them on there for a few minutes on each side.

What are you doing for the 4th of July?

    I have recently discovered I have not one but TWO friends who don’t like guac. Heathens!

    I think we’ll do some scallops two ways – wrapped in ham or bacon and grilled and then a bay scallop ceviche.
