About this Recipe

Bright and zesty citrus gives flavour to familiar chicken wings that are grilled to perfection.


1 tbsp (15 mL) Olive Oil
1 Small onion, chopped
2 Cloves garlic, minced
.5 cup (125 mL) Chopped cilantro
2 tbsp (30 mL) Lemon zest
2 tbsp (30 mL) Lemon juice
2 cups (500 mL) Barbeque sauce
.25 cup (60 mL) Sherry vinegar
1 tsp (5 mL) Turmeric
Salt and Pepper
2 lbs (1 kg) Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Chicken Wings


COMBINE all marinade ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until well blended.

PLACE wings and marinade in a large plastic freezer bag. Seal the bag securely. Gently massage the marinade into the wings. Refrigerate a minimum of four hours or overnight.

PREHEAT BBQ to medium heat. Spray grates with non-stick cooking spray. Remove wings from marinade and grill for 5-7 minutes per side until they are golden brown and an internal temperature of 185°F (85°C) is reached.

SERVE with your favourite dipping sauce.
