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.
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.
- 6-8 chicken wings
- 1 bottle of dark beer
- 1/2 an onion, thinly diced
- 1 tablespoon of chilli flakes
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 spring onion, roughly chopped
- 1 sprinkling of sesame seeds
- 1 splattering of siracha sauce
- Preheat your oven to gas mark 6-7
- 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
- Pour in the wings, beer, onion, soy sauce and honey, and baste well
- Seal the boat up and roast on high for 40 mins
- 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
- Turn the chicken and cook until the skin on the other side does the same thing (around another 10-20 mins)
- Serve up smothered in siracha sauce, sesame seeds and spring onions
