Recipe for Sticky Chicken Wings

Prep Time:

10 minutes (excl day marinade time)

Cook Time:

20 minutes (braai) or 35 minutes (oven)
Kids love these for casual, around-the pool lunchtime snacks, or pop them onto a braai for a nice change. Serve with some oven chips and don’t forget the paper napkins for sticky fingers!

Ingredients(3)

  • 12-15 chicken wings

For the marinade

  •  80 ml   Barbeque Sauce
  •  60 ml   SPAR tomato sauce
  •  10 ml  spicy barbeque spice
  •  60 ml   SPAR brown sugar
  •  60 ml   SPAR apricot jam
  •  10 ml   Worcestershire sauce
  •   3 ml    dried chilli flakes

Method

  1. Place the chicken wings in a shallow container.
  2. Mix together all the marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken. Leave to marinate for at least 2 hours, or overnight if you can, turning occasionally.
  3. Cook the chicken on the braai, over medium-hot coals and cook for about 20 minutes, brushing with any marinade left in the dish as it cooks. If it's colouring too quickly, move to a cooler part of the barbecue to cook more gently. It's important you cook the chicken all the way through.
  4. The chicken can also be cooked in the oven for perfect picnic food.  Preheat the oven to 200 º C Transfer the chicken into a roasting tray with a couple of spoons of marinade. Place in the oven for about 35 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with the marinade and juices until thoroughly sticky and dark golden-brown, adding extra marinade to the tray if necessary.

Hints and Tips

Line the baking tray with foil before adding the chicken. Marinade is very messy and this suggestion ensures easy cleaning up afterwards with just discarding the foil with the marinade on.
