Grilled Chicken Wings With Ginger And Lemon

Grilled chicken wings with ginger and lemon
A simple yet delicious grilled chicken dish that always gets raves from the health conscious! Yogurt, used instead of cream or mayonnaise in the marinade, adds taste without adding extra calories. Serve this with an accompaniment like Wasabi and Green Chili Chutney.


8 whole chicken wings, about 2 lbs (1 kg)
Spiced Yogurt Marinade
        1 cup (245 g) plain yogurt, whisked until smooth
        1 tablespoon ground cumin
        1 tablespoon garam masala
        1 teaspoon Asian chili powder or ground cayenne pepper
        4-in (10-cm) piece peeled and minced fresh ginger
        Salt, to taste, Juice of 2 lemons
        8 cloves garlic, ­nely chopped.


Step 1:

Remove the tips of the wings and discard. Use kitchen shears or a knife to separate the wings at the joint.

Step 2:

To make the Spiced Yogurt Marinade, mix together the yogurt, cumin, garam masala, chili powder, ginger, salt, lemon juice and garlic in a large bowl.

Step 3:

Add the chicken wings to the marinade and toss to evenly coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.

Step 4:

Preheat a grill pan or an indoor electric grill to high heat.

Step 5:

Place the chicken wings on the lightly-oiled hot grill in a single layer and cook for 5 or 6 minutes on each side, until the meat is charred at the edges, ­rm and completely cooked. Serve hot.
