We’re always up for a great new recipe for the grill, and this one uses one of our favorite summertime fruits, the watermelon. Grab your  chicken wings, crank up the grill and get glazing.

Watermelon Glaze

  • 2 cups watermelon puree
  • Juice from 3 fresh lemons
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (can use light version)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper, or to taste



  • Chicken wings or drumettes
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves minced fresh garlic


Watermelon Glaze

Simmer ingredients together in a heavy saucepan for 20 minutes or until sauce is thick. Makes 2 cups. Keep warm.


Place the chicken in a large zipper lock bag with rest of the ingredients and seal tightly. Allow to marinate at least 2 hours or up to 12. Grill until cooked and arrange on a warm platter. Pour the glaze over the chicken and serve immediately.
