One of our absolute favourite dishes to serve when we are catering for a crowd is our properly free range chicken wings, guaranteed to please the hungriest crowd. We have a few tried and tested, super simple marinades that take this humble ingredient to the next level. 

We always recommend making a marinade a day ahead, giving the flavour a proper chance to permeate the chicken. 

Chicken Wings

Honey & Mustard Marinade

4 tablespoons of runny honey
1 teaspoon of good oil
1 tablespoon of wholegrain mustard
1 teaspoon English mustard
A splash of cider vinegar
A good pinch of salt

Garlic, Lemon & Honey Marinade

3 garlic cloves, finely grated
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons runny honey
Finely chopped thyme
A pinch of salt

Homemade Tomato Marinade

4 tablespoons of ketchup (try our Bloody Mary sauce)
A glug of Worcestershire sauce
A splash of cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of honey
A good pinch of salt
A proper grind of black pepper
1 garlic clove finely grated
Dried chili seeds (optional)

Asian Style Marinade

2 crushed garlic cloves
A good chunk of fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
1 lime, zested and juiced
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons chilli sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Sliced spring onions
A bunch of coriander roughly chopped

Sticky Jerk Marinade

1 scotch bonnet chilli, chopped
A good chunk of ginger, chopped
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
3 tablespoons runny honey
2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

How To Cook

Simply choose your marinade and combine all the ingredients. Pour over the wings, making sure the marinade is evenly distributed. Leave to marinade for a day, or at least a couple of hours. When you're ready to cook, place the wings in a preheated oven set to 180C, cover over the wings and cook for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for a further 15 minutes.
