I had a recipe request for a healthy yet easy chicken wing recipe. Sticky chicken wings always seemed appealing, so this recipe makes it healthier by avoiding the frying bit - rather you cook it in the oven. I don't like eating skin of the chicken, so I wanted to remove the skin from the chicken wings, yet the butcher said that is pretty difficult - so I left it on. However, I cut off excess skin and cleaned up the wings at home before use.
- Prepare your chicken wings if you want, by removing excess skin/hair etc
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and dip each chicken wing in the bowl to coat with the marinate, then place in a baking dish lined with foil. Add the remaining marinate over the chicken
- Place in the oven on 180 degrees Celsius for 45 mins (I set the timer every 15 mins, so that I can spoon the marinate over the chicken regularly)
These were absolutely delicious mashAllah! Better than the ready made ones you buy! For some I took off the skin, and the chicken still tasted lovely. I served it with chips, a side salad would be lovely too. Most importantly, enjoy :)
