Grilled Chicken Wing & Blue Cheese Wraps

Well, happy Wednesday, my friends! This week has been a little hectic for me–just trying to get things organized for my trip next week!

So, this was our dinner last night. Talk about quick and easy. You basically marinate some chicken and grill it up. Top it with a glaze and throw it on a soft pita. Seriously yummy. I also made a blue cheese spread that is delicious with this chicken. Heck, scrap the pita and just dip the chicken in the sauce! It’s a great make ahead meal too. Or appetizer!

You can also modify it to a heat and sweet level you like within the glaze. I used equal parts hot sauce, butter and honey. My little one surprisingly licked the spicy glaze off the chicken! She likes the heat! Don’t know where she got that from….

Anyways, give this one a whirl! It’s super easy and hardly any dishes! Gotta love that on a weeknight!

When you are ready to cook, place all ingredients for the glaze in a small bowl and microwave to melt the butter. Stir and set aside. Preheat outdoor grill to high heat. Remove chicken from refrigerator and grill 2-3 minutes a side or until grill marks form and thoroughly cooked. Spoon glaze over cooked chicken and cover with foil to keep warm.
