Triple-Hot Chicken

  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium (if using gas grill), or until charcoal is covered with gray ash and is medium-hot. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Serve chicken with reserved hot sauce.
