One of my favourite treats. It’s one that I used to take for granted while living in Canada and before my metabolism slowed after I hit 30! Turns out that chicken wings are not a staple menu item in most pubs around the world – and they don’t always cost 10 cents a piece – so when the craving strikes, I’ve taken to making my own. Designated “version 1” because the sauce wasn’t as thick as I’d imagined. However, it was pretty tasty and still coated the wings, so I’ve decided to stick with it.
Makes 28 winglets
14 whole chicken wings
Vegetable oil for frying
4 cloves garlic
6 tbsp honey
1 tbsp soy sauce
1. Separate wings into drumsticks and winglets
2. Heat the oil on a grill pan at medium-high heat and grill the wings for 15-20 minutes; turning halfway through
3. In the meantime, in the Thermomix, add garlic into the bowl and chop for 5 seconds/Speed 7
4. Add honey and soy sauce to the bowl and heat with the measuring cup (MC) half off for 10 minutes/90C/Speed 3
5. Put wings in a mixing bowl, pour sauce on top and mix together
Tips and Hints
1. The wings may have to be cooked in batches – or use multiple pans. They can also be cooked on the BBQ.
Serve with vegetable sticks (e.g. carrots, celery, peppers, cucumber, etc)
