Break out from the usual buffalo-style chicken wings with this unique and delicious recipe.

Limoncello is a naturally gluten-free Italian liquor and makes a great and flavorful addition to the chicken wings marinade. Grilling creates a wonderful char on these wings thanks in part to the sugar content in the Limoncello.

The actual preparation and grilling time for these wings is minimal, but know that the wings need to marinate for 2-6 hours so plan ahead.

The Ingredients

  • 3 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 cup olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 cup Limoncello, Italian liqueur, natually gluten-free
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 onion, large
  • 1 tbsp thyme, fresh (1 tsp if using dried)
  • 1 tbsp oregano, fresh (1 tsp if using dried)

The Process

Marinade the Wings

  • Grill the wings for 12-15 minutes or until the juices run clear.
  • Turn as needed to help keep flareups to a minimum and wings from burning.
