To make the sauce:

Bring to a boil – then lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until reduced to about 1/2 cup. Remove from heat and whisk in the butter and xanthan gum. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
To make the wings:
Season the wings liberally with salt and pepper. Preheat your grill for about ten minutes – then place the wings on the grill (don’t crowd them) and cook on medium high heat for about 5 minutes per side or until grill marks are achieved and the chicken is mostly cooked through.
Reduce the heat a bit (or move the wings to the side if char-grilling) and baste with sauce – then cook for an additional 5 minutes per side (or longer depending on your preference,) basting each time you turn.
Serve hot, garnished with cilantro and scallions.
