Jerk Chicken Wings Grilled in A Foil Packet

Happy Memorial Day!

Yay to the official arrival of grilling season!

I've talked about my love of grilling season before.... I love the smell AND taste of grilled foods. It's one of the best parts of summer.

And did you know that you can pretty much grill everything in a foil packet right on your grill? 

Could grilling get anymore simpler?




































These wings had the perfect amount of spicy balanced out by the sweet from the lime juice. And though they aren't grilled directly on the grill grates, they still have that 'fresh-off-the-grill' taste that I so desire, with nice grill marks and all.




































Jerk Chicken Wings Grilled in A Foil Packet
ever-so-slightly adapted from Food Network 
  • 8 chicken wings, split
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons jerk seasoning
  • juice from 1 lime (or half a lime)
  • nonstick foil
Toss 8 split chicken wings, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, and 3 tablespoons jerk seasoning on a sheet of foil. Form a packet around the wings. Grill over high heat, turning once or twice to prevent burning, for 25 minutes. Top with cilantro and lime juice.































All photos were taken with my Samsung Galaxy SII phone because I didn't have a memory card for the dslr.

What's on your Memorial Day menu this year? Looking for more ideas? Well, here's some.

Hope you all have a great Memorial Day. I'm enjoying mine with a day off work, time with family, and some grilling fun! Maybe even some cornhole :) And of course being grateful for those who've served our country, especially those who gave their lives. Brave, brave honorable souls.

Linking up here.

Peace, and bacon grease!

The wings look amazing!! What sort of jerk seasoning do you use? The last I bought was more salt than spice-- and I like the heat! Loving the foil packet idea :)

The wings look delicious and you are right, grilling foods in foil always turn out great. All of the Memorial Day weekend recipes on your site look awesome. Thank you for sharing at the BBQ Block Party and hope you come back next week.
