Salt & Pepper Chicken Wings Recipe

Start by cutting them up. You want to divide the whole wing into three pieces: the drumette, the wingette/flat and the wing tip as you can see in the picture below.


Lay them out on some paper towels and dry them thoroughly and then transfer wings to a large bowl.

Season generously with the salt & pepper and mix to cover them well. Next sprinkle over the baking powder and mix to coat well.

And finally lay them on a baking tray lined with aluminium foil or baking paper. Give them plenty of room - use two baking sheets if possible.

First you are going to roast the chicken wings to get them nice and crispy and golden brown. This takes around 30-40 minutes in a hot oven. Turn them after 20 minutes.

While they are cooking you can get the rest of the seasoning ready by finely chopping the garlic, spring onions and fresh chilli.

Once the wings come out of the oven, heat up the oil in a wok and toss in the garlic. Cook it over a high heat until the garlic starts to brown.

Then stir in the sesame oil, followed by half the spring onion and half the chilli. And finally throw in the crispy chicken wings and stir to coat in the garlic mixture.

Transfer them to a serving dish and garnish with the remaining spring onion and chili. Then serve!
