Grilled Jerk Chicken Wings and Spicy Cabbage
Grilled chicken wings and cabbage?! I know, I know, hear me out. Sometimes I like to throw in something bulky, yet healthy, to fill up a meal. That way, I'm not left eating a ton of bread or carbs. Considering I was making jerk wings, I knew they would need something hearty yet not heavy, to pair along with them. Sautéed cabbage is a go-to of mine to bulk up a meal. Honestly, I've eaten it plain sautéed many times just by itself!
I marinated my fresh cut chicken wings (only way to go, in my opinion) in dry jerk seasoning that I picked up from The Spice Corner at the Italian Market, plus EVOO. I let them sit for about 20 minutes then grilled until they had a good char on them, about 20 min +/- on a gas grill.
I cut the cabbage into large dice, and sautéed it in a very hot pan with EVOO, salt, pepper, and a healthy bit of red pepper flakes. I like to cook the cabbage until it begins to char and over time it becomes almost caramelized. You really need to try it--- it's a game changer!
