Triple-Hot Chicken

Triple-Hot ChickenKick off the grilling season with this spicy recipe for chicken legs—and other delectable parts!

Recipe Ingredients:

3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons bottled hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 1/2 pounds chicken drumsticks, thighs and/or wings

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat grill to medium (if using gas grill), or until charcoal is covered with gray ash and is medium-hot.
  2. Meanwhile, combine vinegar, sugar, pepper sauce, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne to make hot sauce; mix well. Set aside 3/4 cup of mixture to serve as dipping sauce; use remaining for basting.
  3. Place chicken on grill. Brush with basting sauce. Grill for 15 minutes (10 minutes for wings), basting often. Turn chicken over and baste again. Basting often, grill for 15 to 20 minutes more (10 to 15 minutes for wings) or until internal juices run clear. Discard leftover basting sauce.
  4. Serve chicken with reserved hot sauce.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
