Zesty Grilled Wings

What’s better than making a recipe using only 3 ingredients?? Eating it! These Zesty Grilled Wings may only include 3 ingredients, but they are full of flavor and perfect for adding a little zest into your special occasions.

Kraft sent me a bottle of their Zesty Italian Dressing and asked me to share a flavorful way to dine at home with it. My husband loves Kraft Italian Dressing and actually prefers that I use it in my Spaghetti Salad with Bell Peppers and Olives recipe, so I was happy to accept the challenge.

With Spring weather in full force here in Vegas, I decided that Zesty Grilled Wings were a perfect choice so I could take my cooking outdoors. With only 3 ingredients and only a couple steps, they are SO easy to make.

Zesty Grilled Wings

To make them, you will marinate your chicken wings for at least 30 minutes in Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing. Then, grill them and brush on some barbecue sauce at the end.

YUM! My Zesty Grilled Wings were gone in no time and everyone raved about them. While I’ve made grilled chicken with barbecue sauce before and also marinated chicken in Kraft Italian dressing before, this was the first time I’ve combined both in one recipe. It was a perfect duo! These are great for everything from a party with friends to a weeknight dinner with the family.

    The way i zest up my life is to make sure something new is experienced, or learnt everyday. If you do something new everyday, then there is always something to look forward to.

    I don’t know what I’d prefer more…the zesty dressing or the zesty guy! Well, since I’m married I guess I have to go for the dressing. Rats. Haha. As for how I zest up my life? Any way I can. A night at home with hubs watching TV with a couple plates of nachos is always fun. =)

    I zest up my life by trying newer and bolder dishes from time to time. It helps me beat bordem.

    I’d never think to marinate my chicken with dressing! I actually just came back from the grocery store and bought some wings. I didn’t know how I was gonna cook them tomorrow so this recipe is perfect timing! How do I zest up my life? With honeydew boba :) It’s an addiction I tell ya but it’s so refreshing haha.
