Dry-Rub Grilled Wings

Father’s Day weekend = BBQ, BBQ, BBQ!

When I think of wings I naturally think of the fried and unhealthy variation from my good ‘ol college days, but that doesn’t always have to be the case! 


This week for Healthy Food Friday with American Express, let’s transform this wing party into a guilt-free one! These wings are flavor-packed and grilled to perfection. Plus, they are easy breezy! Perfect for anyone on grill duty this weekend.


You’re welcome, Dad!
