Recipe of The Week – 1st June 2015
Hot & Spicy Chicken Wings
What you need (makes 4)
16 chicken wings
3 cloves garlic crushed
Finely grated rind + juice of 1 lime
2 red chillies de-seeded & finely chopped
2 teaspoons moscavado sugar
Teaspoon ground cumin
2 dessertspoons tomato ketchup
2 dessertspoons of olive oil
What you do
Place the wings into a large pan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2 minutes before draining in a colander.
Meanwhile make the marinade by placing the remaining ingredients together and mixing well.
Add the warm chicken wings to the marinade and toss well, leave for half an hour. Pre heat an oven to 180C degrees.
Place the wings on a roasting tray with the marinade and cook for 20 minutes until cooked and browned, stirring occasionally to keep all the marinade over the chicken before serving.
I keep hoping that the sun will come out and I can use BBQ recipes that I wrote some weeks ago – here’s hoping! This is really simple, straightforward and can be roasted in an oven if the rain falls. They are wonderful served as a snack with a good bottle of chilled beer. I have often varied the recipe by adding some fresh herbs such as coriander or even mint. It also works well with chicken drumsticks or thighs but leave them a bit longer to marinate so the flavour seeps through.
