Easy campfire chicken wings dinner idea that everyone will love. So simple and delicious it’ll become a family favorite.

As a teenager you don’t really think much about your favorite recipes. People just show up to the BBQ and before you know it, everyone is grabbing paper plates and silverware and lining up for their turn at potato salad, burgers and chicken wings.

Not once did you think about how those things really came together until years later when you are now the one bringing the food that only a little time ago, magically appeared.

Along with a few other BBQ staples these chicken wings were my absolute favorite! They would just fall off the bone and melt in your mouth. So obviously they were too complicated for me to even try to make, right?

So I asked for the recipe and was astonished with the simple reply.

A few of you might not like this method of cooking these chicken wings over the campfire the way we do, but all I have to say to that is, don’t knock it till you try it.

CAMPFIRE CHICKEN WINGS

Ingredients

Equipment

  • 13″x9″ deep dish aluminum foil pan
  • tongs
  • heat safe gloves

MARINATE THE CHICKEN

Since we are making these chicken wings while camping, it’ll be a lot easier to toss them into a gallon ziplock bag and pour in Mr. Yoshida’s marinade and cooking sauce. You may even want to put the ziplock bag in a plastic grocery bag if that makes you a little nervous. Otherwise just marinate the chicken at the campsite for at least 30 minutes.

Note- Depending on how many chicken wings you’ll be making you may only need to use half the bottle of marinade.

START THE CAMPFIRE

These campfire chicken wings will be cooking over the fire so you’ll need to have a grate or something similar for them to sit on. Start the fire under the grate. You’ll want a small to medium fire and one where you can easily add wood to keep the fire going while the chicken cooks.

COOK OVER PARTIAL FLAME

Cover the pan with tin foil and place over indirect heat using heat safe gloves. Rotate pan every few minutes and continue to cook for approximately 30 minutes.

CONTINUE COOKING UNCOVERED

Remove tin foil cover and continue to cook approximately 15 more minutes. This will allow the liquid to thicken and really coat the chicken wings.

REMOVE FROM HEAT AND ENJOY

Once the chicken is fully cooked at 165°, slide pan off the heat using heat safe gloves and remove the chicken wings from the pan onto a serving dish, using tongs. Properly discard extra juice in pan once it is fully cooled.

Serve and enjoy!

DO YOU NEED TO CUT THE CHICKEN WINGS BEFORE COOKING

Sometimes you can find chicken wings already cut for you. Other times you’re at the mercy of what’s on hand at the store. You can choose to cut and separate the wing from the drumstick however, it’s not necessary.

It’s really more personal preference.

WHERE CAN YOU FIND MR. YOSHIDA’S
