Foil-Pack Grilled Asian Chicken Wings
Hoisin sauce delivers a sweet, salty and spicy punch to these sticky chicken wings. If you don’t have it on hand, it’s worth adding to your collection – the Asian sauce is a versatile glaze for grilled chicken, pork or steak, or mix it with water and arrowroot and use it as a stir-fry sauce.
