Sesame Barbecue Blend
Tellicherry Black Peppercorn - Ground
Preheat your grill or oven to medium-high heat. If using a grill, make sure it is clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.
In a small bowl, combine the pre-blended Sesame Barbecue Blend, honey, vegetable oil, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a glaze.
Pat dry the chicken wings using paper towels to remove any excess moisture.
Brush the chicken wings generously with the honey glaze, ensuring they are well coated on all sides. Reserve some of the glaze for basting.
Place the wings on the grill or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper if using the oven. If grilling, cook the wings for about 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with the reserved glaze, until they are cooked through and have a nice charred appearance. If baking in the oven, bake at 400°F (200°C) for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until the wings are cooked through and golden brown, flipping and basting halfway through the cooking process.
Once cooked, remove the chicken wings from the grill or oven and let them rest for a few minutes.
Garnish the wings with sesame seeds, fresh cilantro, or green onions if desired, for an extra touch of flavor and visual appeal.
Serve the Honey-Glazed Sesame Barbecue Chicken Wings hot as an appetizer or as part of a main course. Pair them with a side of creamy coleslaw, a cooling cucumber yogurt dip, or your favorite dipping sauce.
