Spicy, Sticky & Crispy Chicken Wings

Everyone loves chicken wings, the only problem is the cost so much from supermarkets and even more from a restaurant or take away.
Follow my recipe and make your own at home and not only will you save a fortune they are far better than you will get anywhere.
I boil then bake them which makes them lovely and crispy with the added benefit of being a lot healthier as a lot of the fat stays in the pot when you boil them
The sauce contains a good bit of sugar which can be replaced with honey if you prefer.

Pre-heat your oven to 180c GM4

Split the wings in the centre so you have 2 pieces per wing.

Boil for 10 minutes, strain using the colander and allow cool for 20 minutes or so. Then place on the baking tray and bake on the top of the oven for 20-25 minutes until nice and crispy

Meanwhile, add the sauce ingredients to the small pot and boil until nice and thick. Strain into the medium bowl using the sieve and push through using a soup spoon. Discard the stuff left in the sieve. WARNING the sauce gets very very hot, please be very careful esp with kids around. This will scar you or them for life if it burns you.
