Easy Grilled Chicken Wings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


12 chicken wings

2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat (or use an outdoor grill). Brush the oil on the pan or grill, and then add the wings, making sure not to overcrowd.

Cook for about 5 minutes, then flip the wings over and place the grill pan in the oven for about 10 minutes. The wings should have nice grill marks and be lightly golden brown, but test with an instant-read thermometer to make sure it registers 165°F. Carefully remove the pan from the oven—remember to use a pot holder!—and let cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing to glaze or season.
