I like grilled chicken wings, as you can view in my post of 09/04/18, where I grilled chicken wings Asian style. Today I’m preparing what I call Boricua Chicken Wings. And it’s one of the most delicious and easiest way to prepare chicken  on the grill. I call it “Boricua “style since it uses the spices and ingredients most common to Nuyorican cooking.  It has a decidedly Latino flavor. So, the season is back, prep up the grill, and enjoy.



2 pounds chicken wings
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Wash chicken wings under running water and pat dry with paper towels.
  2.  Place wings in a large bowl. Add the rest of ingredients, and mix well. Transfer wings to a large zip-lock bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or, better yet, overnight.
  3. Start a charcoal or gas grill, and preheat. Fire should be moderately hot and rack should be about 6 inches from source of heat. Place wings on grill and cook for about 10-15 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
    Yield: 4 servings or more.
