Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 5 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning, dried
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lemon, zested (no juice, zest only)
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 lbs chicken wings, party style
  • minced parsley, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl and whisk together.
  2. Add the chicken wings and toss well to coat. Cover the bowl or transfer the wings and marinade to a large ziplock bag and chill for at least four hours or overnight.
  3. Remove the chicken wings from the marinade and pat lightly. Heat a grill to medium heat and lay the wings in a single layer on the grate.

  4. Close the grill and cook for 15 - 20 mins, turning occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium/low midway through cooking.

  5. Serve garnished with minced parsley if desired.
Recipe Notes

Yield: about one dozen wings

  • I like to use "party-style" wings for this recipe meaning wings with the tips removed and separated into drummettes and flats.
  • The longer you marinate these wings, the better the flavor. Overnight is ideal.
  • Patting the wings lightly with paper towels before you grill them will prevent flare-ups.
  • Watch for flare-ups as the skins renders when you grill the wings and adjust the flame so they don't scorch.
  • These wings are delicious on their own, but a creamy dipping sauce like ranch or blue cheese is a tasty serving idea.
