Grilled Dry Rub Chicken Wings

Summer is in full swing and between the smell of sunscreen and barbeque, it’s no mystery that grilling season is upon us!

My husband and I are total suckers for all things summer – including grilling out. We’ve also recently been obsessed with chicken wings.

While chicken wings usually conjure up an image of the epitome of greasy unhealthy fried bar food, I’m here to prove otherwise!

Today I’ve got chicken wings seasoned with a dry rub! They are spicy, smokey, and oh so delicious. Combine these at a cookout with our Conscious Creamy “Potato” Salad and your next BBQ will be a hit for sure.

Check out the recipe below and please leave me a comment. Love chicken wings? Love to grill? Put the two together and let me know what you think.

    These were delicious! Love the spice combo – our BBQ ran out of propane right as we were about to put these on so we did them in the oven instead. They were very tasty but I imagine would be even better on the BBQ!

      Hi Emily,

      Yay! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed them so much. It’s great to know they’re good in the oven, too. Thanks so much for your feedback!
