Pour some barbecue sauce into a bowl. I actually bought the silicon grilling brush a long time ago at Marshalls! The sauce came from Marshalls’ food section too. I’m always telling my friends about the awesome food and baking supplies I find in their gourmet food section!

Grill the chicken wings on medium high for 4 minutes. Then, flip over and brush the bbq sauce on the chicken and cook for 3 minutes. Flip again and brush bbq sauce. Cook for another 3 minutes.

    So smart to do on the grill because of the easy clean up! I’m a HUGE shopper at TJMaxx and HomeGoods for sauces and such. I need to head to Marshall’s, they just opened in our area.

    I’d rather have wings cook this way than fried. They’re so much better!! And so easy!
