Simple and Easy Grilled Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings are a great food for a barbecue or picnic food. These simple and easy grilled chicken wings are delicious. I start them in the slow cooker the morning of the party or the night before, so they are already cooked before throwing them on the grill.  This way I can focus on other party prep and the wings are cooked through and very tender.

Chicken wings are a staple for tailgating and football parties, but they also make a great addition to a backyard barbecue or a picnic in the park.

Toss with one of these sauces just before grilling and make sure you have extra sauce for dipping.
