I don’t think i’ll ever get bored of a chicken wing. They are probably the one thing that’s stopping me going veggie.
A good wing is one of those things that is just as satisfying on a sunny Sunday afternoon as it is at 3am on a blurry night.
I’ve cooked a few different versions of this recipe before (see here & here).
But i have to admit i think this is my favourite. roasted in a dark beer you can’t really go wrong (i used Celia’s gluten free because they were lovely enough to send me a bottle).
Served up with some sweet potato fries (recipe here) and some tahini steamed kale (recipe here) this is proper comfort food at it’s best.

  1. Preheat your oven to gas mark 6-7
  2. Create a foil boat in a baking tray (big enough to hold all the wings n’ beer and with enough spare foil to wrap the whole thing up into a parcel
  3. Pour in the wings, beer, onion, soy sauce and honey, and baste well
  4. Seal the boat up and roast on high for 40 mins
  5. Open up the boat and stir the beer to coat the chicken a couple of times before popping it back in without the lid and cook for 20 mins until the skin starts to crisp up
  6. Turn the chicken and cook until the skin on the other side does the same thing (around another 10-20 mins)
  7. Serve up smothered in siracha sauce, sesame seeds and spring onions
