This recipe is awesome. We have been making these 3 times a week! Because everyone at my place loves them.
The good thing about this recipe is that you’ll have most ingredients in your pantry already and you can go a bit freestyle with the measuring once you’ve made them a few times. I suggest you make LOTS because they are extra good cold from the fridge! Also, they smell ridiculously good when they are baking. You have been warned.
A special note for Reannon – your gang are going to LOVE these, I reckon!!!!
World’s Best After School Chicken Wings
(Also good for breakfast, lunch and dinner… and supper… and picnics!)
Based on a recipe by the rad Adam Liaw
Feeds a family of six for dinner (with a potato salad and a nice dinner roll or two) AND you’ll have some leftover if you are aren’t totally greedy buggers.
2 kg of chicken wings (each wing should be cut into 3 at the joint and the tips can be discarded)
I know, it’s a lot but these are so good and also great cold. You will be glad of the leftovers.
80g of salted butter
1 tablespoon of Dijon (or other mild) mustard
4 tablespoons of tomato sauce (aka ketchup!)
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce (I like Lee and Perrins because it’s nice and sweet!)
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of white vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
1/2 tablespoon of chilli sauce (I actually use more – 2 tablespoons – but you might not like it so spicy!)
1 teaspoon of sweet paprika
a good grinding of black pepper or 1/2 teaspoon of white pepper
How to do it:
Mix all the ingredients in a pot over a low heat until combined.
Pour over the wings and toss well.
Line two large baking trays with baking paper.
Pop the wings on the paper. Bake in a hot oven for around 35 minutes (220 degrees C) – just make sure they are starting to caramelise and they are cooked through nicely.
Allow to cool a bit, smack your lips and then GOBBLE THEM UP!
NB: Make sure you put some in the fridge and have them cold the next day because that’s my FAVOURITE way to eat these!
