Chicken Wings!

I have not actually ever made chicken wings before and thought I would attempt some as my brother and sister love them. The recipe I used was fairly simple and I had hoped that the overnight marinating of the chicken would give it a lot of flavour, but surprisingly it was just mediocre for my taste so if any readers have any tips or other recipes, I would be very grateful if you would leave comments below.

Easy chicken wings, makes 16

Preparation time : 15 minutes

Roasting time : 45-50 minutes

-16 raw chicken wings

-2 garlic cloves, crushed

-Zest and juice of 1 lemon

-1tsp cumin seeds

2 tbsp olive oil

-1 tbsp honey (optional)

First make the marinade by mixing garlic, lemon zest, juice, cumin and oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Toss the wings in the marinade so that they are thoroughly coated and leave to rest overnight so that the marinade can be absorbed in the meat. As I didn’t find that the flavour had been absorbed quite as much, I would suggest making some small slits in the chicken wings to improve this.

When you are ready to cook the chicken wings, put in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 45-50 minutes until golden brown and crisp. You can drizzle a little honey onto them for the last 10 minutes if roasting if preferred.
