I do like chicken wings and not only are they cheap, they are tasty too. The key is to cook them fresh and not to re-heat them.
The problem I have found with ordering chicken wings in restaurants is that they re-heat pre-cooked ones to order. I know that they often do this as it saves time, but if you have only ever eaten chicken wings from a restaurant then you must try cooking them fresh and you will be able to taste the difference.
I do joint the wings and then roast in the oven for about 15-20 mins. It’s as this point I add any sauce; I have found that though you can add the sauce from the beginning, there is a possibility it will burn. The wings are then cooked for a further 10-15 minutes.
I often make my own sauces, but I do also use ready made sauces to see what they’re like or for inspiration to try and make a better home made one later.
I tried out a jar of Blue Dragon Chinese BBQ Sticky Sauce.
A smoky and sticky sauce for roasting with a rich blend of molasses, caramel, garlic, ginger and Chinese spices.
I did really quite like this, sweet and sticky, but the garlic and ginger really coming through. Probably quite easy to make yourself too.
