Grilled Cajun Chicken Wings With White BBQ Dipping Sauce

Oh my goodness, these grilled Cajun Chicken Wings are amazing and they are now a new favorite for me!

A Cajun spice rub gives these crust layered wings an earthy and herbal flavor, with added smokiness from the grill, while the delicious and unique White BBQ Dipping sauce provides a tangy blend of creamy mayonnaise, tangy vinegar and fresh lemon juice and just a touch heat.

I have to admit, I do not like chicken wings. I know, I know… I have always viewed chicken wings as puny. I mean really, you have to admit there isn’t much there. You have to make a whole pile of wings just to get full off of them. You end up with this be a pile of chicken carcass on your plate, with your hands all covered and dripping with sauce and Lord only knows what else is on them and you have practically worked yourself to death gnawing on them things. Why not just eat a big ole chicken leg? You get way more meat and you don’t have to gnaw yourself to death… Plus, you know I’m not a big sauce eating kind of girl either.

However, there is always an exception to the rule for everything and I’m about to tell you about the exception to my chicken wing rule. David decided he was going to make some chicken wings using the new jar of Cajun seasoning. He loves chicken wings and I know a lot you are probably wing fans too, so I told him to go for it. If they were good I’d add the recipe to a blog post.

He seasoned the wings with the spice rub and baked them in the oven. David said the wings were some of the best wings he had eaten and I had to try them. He handed me a drumette and told me to try it.

Wait a minute… you can get little drumettes mixed in with the wings?!?

This changes things and gives me an exception to my own rule. I had him make some more wings and drumettes. This time we grilled them and I prepared a White BBQ Sauce to dip them in. Here’s what I did:

Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Combine Cajun seasoning and chicken wings and drumettes in a medium, zip-top bag. Close bag and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or overnight.

Light the grill and preheat to medium-high heat. Dip a wad of paper towels in oil; using tongs, carefully wipe the grate of the grill. Place the wings and drumettes on the grill; grill covered, flipping occasionally, until they are crispy, golden brown and cooked through, about 20 minutes.

If the wings begin to burn, move them to a cooler part of the grill.

While the wings and drumettes are cooking, make the sauce. Using a whisk, combine the White BBQ Sauce ingredients together in a small saucepan, over medium-low heat; whisking constantly for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into a serving bowl to cool.

Serve the grilled Cajun chicken wings and drumettes plain with the sauce* on the side.

*Note: Leftover sauce can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Let cool completely and refrigerate.

Not only did David and I discover a new way to use the Cajun seasoning, but I also discovered that David and I can both enjoy wings and drumettes together (barring no excessive use of sauces for me of course).

Try this!
