Greek Style Grilled Wings with Yogurt Dill Sauce – Supper for a Steal

Greek Style Grilled Wings with Yogurt Dill Sauce – Supper for a Steal

Greek Marinated Chicken WingsAs most people know, I love tailgating. When the opportunity arose to work with Gallo Family Vineyards on a tailgating recipe I couldn’t resist. I mean I did host the tailgate #SundaySupper the past two years in a row.

Even though the past few years have been pretty sorry years for my team and we aren’t expecting much out of them this year I will still enjoy whipping up some tasty tailgating favorites.

Marinated Wings

I love to enjoy a large variety of food when tailgating, from nachos to brownies, but chicken in some form or another is always included.

Grilled wings are my absolute favorite, and I would argue that grilling is the best way to cook wings. The marinade was a no-brainer for me. I use it a lot for grilled chicken breasts and they are always tender and juicy.

I leave the beer for my husband and when tailgating I always reach for the wine. I love that Gallo Family Vineyards now makes these mini (187mL) bottles that are perfect to take along to the tailgate. Since this recipe uses only 1/4 cup of Chardonnay you are left with the perfect amount to enjoy while munching on the wings and other tailgating treats.

Greek Style Grilled Wings with Yogurt Dill Sauce

The classic flavor of the Mediterranean is all in this recipe for grilled wings with a yogurt dill sauce. The yogurt dill sauce is a natural match for the grilled wings, but the recipe also includes a garlic spread and a Greek yogurt based dipping sauce for a little more variety.

Instructions

  • Combine all the ingredients for the wings in a large ziploc bag. Marinate for 1-2 hours.
