Grilled Chicken Wings with Shishito Peppers

By Samantha Binkley

This is a favorite recipe of mine using our Healthy OnYou® Spice Spice Baby Asian 6 Spice seasoning. It’s one of the healthiest blends of spices with cinnamon, anise, cloves, and ginger-a powerhouse of disease-fighting spices in one small bottle.

In this recipe, it is combined in a marinade for the chicken wings that punches up the flavor and adds just the right amount of flavor to the mix. The chicken can also be baked in the oven at 375 F for 35 minutes if you aren’t able to use a BBQ grill.
