Cook One, Drink Two: Grilled One-y Citrus Chili Wings
September 23, 2020
Decisions are tough – especially when the question is “What’s for dinner?” We gotchu covered. Taking inspiration from our CANundrum mixed pack of five Oskar Blues favorites, we created a series of recipes infused with each beer in the pack. We stuff three cans of each of the Oskar Blues beers included in the CANundrum pack. Our mantra? Cook one, drink two.
As summertime comes to an end and football season makes its return, the time is right to fire up the grill! Grilled One-y Citrus Chili Wings offer bright summertime flavors to enjoy while the warm weather is still around. The light hoppiness and fruit-forward flavors of One-y 100 Calorie Hazy IPA compliment the savory spice of the brine and chili rub in this recipe. At 100 calories and 4% ABV, you might as well cook one, drink two.
12 oz can One-y Hazy IPA
2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp sugar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp peppercorns
1 orange, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 lbs chicken wings, tips removed, drumettes and flats separated
Vegetable oil, for grill
1 lime, halved
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp ancho chile powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
1. Whisk together One-y, salt, sugar, and garlic in a large mixing bowl until salt and sugar have dissolved. Add water, peppercorns, orange slices, and chicken wings. If necessary, add water until all wings are submerged. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, up to overnight.
2. Remove wings from brine, discarding liquid, and rinse under cold water. Pat dry and arrange on a rack or baking sheet. Combine rub ingredients in a bowl, mixing well to combine. Generously season wings on all sides with spice rub.
3. Heat a grill to medium heat. Oil grates with vegetable oil. Add wings and cook, turning occasionally, until skin is crisp and meat is cooked through, 15-20 minutes.
