BARBQUE CHICKEN WINGS IN THE NINJA FOODI SMART XL GRILL
Updated: Dec 1, 2022
Today I had a taste for some Barbeque Chicken Wings, but it was so hot outside and I did not feel like standing over a hot smokey grill, and too hot to turn the oven on inside. So, I decided to prepare the chicken in my Ninja Foodi Smart XL Grill and doing this was the best thing I thought of all day. Preparing chicken in the Ninja Foodi Grill is quick and easy to make, it only took about 18 minutes from start to finish and the chicken came out delicious.
The chicken came out nice and tender, the chicken skin had the grill marks as if you cooked it on an outdoor grill. The last 5 minutes of cooking, I brushed the chicken with barbeque sauce on both sides and when it was finished, the sauce glazed on the chicken, which gave you a sticky, finger licking good experience. This grill is amazing, it gets my seal of approval, because if you know me, I am about cooking a great meal but one that gets me in and out of the kitchen in no time at all.
Also, if you noticed in my video, the tips were cut off the wings, I normally do this when I am grilling chicken, the reason for this is you will be able to lay the wings down flat, because when you leave the tips on, the wings have a tendency not to cook as even as they do when the tips are cut off. This is proven especially when you use and outdoor grill, the tips can go down in the grate and burn faster. There is always a method to my madness.
So, give this recipe a try, and don’t worry if you do not have a Ninja Foodi Smart XL grill, you can still enjoy finger licking Barbeque Chicken by cooking it on the outside grill or in the oven, either way, preparing the spice rub and coating the chicken before cooking will give you delicious chicken every time. The video and recipe are below, and please feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy!
