For this month’s partnership post with McCormick, they challenged me to try one of their recipes using their new gluten-free mixes. After perusing the options on their website, I came across this recipe for Gluten-Free Grilled Taco Wings, and sent it over to Matt since I thought he would be all about it. He was (he loves his wings!), and decided to try it for our Tuesday night cooking challenge last night, since this was his week to cook!
The recipe came together quickly – all you do is mix their Gluten-Free Taco Seasoning Mix with some oil (we used garlic infused olive oil), lime juice, and vinegar, then marinate the chicken in it in a bowl or bag. The recipe recommends marinating for about 30 minutes, but next time we might throw this together the night before and marinate it overnight!
Then you toss the chicken on the grill! A grill pan would also work well here, or I bet you could bake them.
The chicken took about 15 minutes to cook through. That was easy! We served our wings with a side of roasted potatoes and roasted broccoli. I wish I’d gotten a better photo – it tasted better than it looked in the awkward evening lighting in our dining room. 🙂
Matt and I both really enjoyed the wings – juicy and flavorful! Wings are basically his most favorite food in the world so it’s fun to have a healthier way to make them (e.g. not fried). We’ll definitely be repeating this recipe, and variations of it, in the future. Delicious and easy!
Thank you to McCormick for the dinner recipe inspiration! I can’t wait to try some of their other gluten-free recipes (not because we’re gluten free, obviously, but because you guys know I like mixing it up). Here are a couple that also look great:
- Gluten-Free Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wraps (<—so interesting that this uses gravy mix!)
- Gluten-Free Snappy Cocktail Meatballs (<—would make fun football food)
Thank you to McCormick for sponsoring this post! If you missed my previous McCormick posts, check those out, too:
