Hot and sticky is just what they are and perfect for this BBQ season whether you are at home or away

There does seem alot of ingredients, but believe me, the mixture is amazing and really does give the chicken a real buzz.

Serves : 4        Prep/Cooking Time : 50 mins + marinading

Tip : If you prefer something a little milder, cut down on the chilli and cayenne pepper a little or alternatively, serve with a cucumber raita as this really cools things down!


Marinade the Chicken

Place all the marinade ingredients into a large Lock and Lock container or a sealable plastic bag,.

Add the chicken wings and mix well into the marinade, place in the fridge and allow to marinade for at least 2 hours, or if you want the marinade done quickly, try the Vacu Vin Instant Marinater

Start Cooking

When ready to cook preheat the halogen oven to 190C

Place the thighs and the wings into a large roasting tin and tip in the chicken and the marinade, cover with some tin foil and place on the lower rack of the halogen oven or middle shelf of the conventional oven

Cook for 30 minutes or until cooked through

Remove the foil and transfer the chicken to the top shelf and pour over the runny honey to glaze the chicken wings brushing it evenly, using a silicon pastry brush

Continue to cook at 210C for a further 15 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown

Pour the mixture all over the mixture and coat all the chicken pieces
