Scrumptious Chicken Wings

Recently, we were steered in the direction of a particular café that had sensational bbq rolls. They were so good we went back again! Long story short, it came up in a discussion with another friend and they had the recipe! The recipe listed barbeque sauce, which I’d never made from scratch before. I did a bit of research and mixed and matched and added the spices from the café’s bbq rolls recipe and hey presto – we had ourselves some finger-licking good wings. You must try, they’re highly addictive!

2kgs chicken wings
3 teaspoons chilli powder
1 onion, finely diced
1 ½ cups water
½ cup tomato paste
½ cup white vinegar
½ cup brown sugar
3 ½ tbs honey
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp salt
¼ tsp coarsely ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp paprika
1 tbs cinnamon
2 tbs Dijon mustard

Cook the onion in the oil for 5 minutes. Stir in the water, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, honey and Worcestershire.

Season with 2 teaspoons salt, ¼ teaspoon black pepper, garlic and 1 teaspoon chilli powder. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 1 ¼ hours, uncovered, or until sauce thickens.

Preheat 200C and cut the chicken wings into 3 at the joints and discard the wing tips.

Toss the wings with approximately ½ cup of the bbq sauce. Arrange chicken in roasting tray in a single layer and roast in the oven for 25 minutes, turning at the half way point.

Remove from the oven and toss again with more bbq sauce ad serve.

Hey I tried this chicken wings recipe together with the potatoe bake. Both dishes were a huge success. Thanks, just need to take a bit more care in the way you have mentioned the ingredients as they did not quite follow the method you described.

Thanks for pointing that out Anisha. The original recipe had liquid smoke, which I didn't have or know how to get (let alone heard of). I have removed it totally now.
