Enjoy these Asian inspired sticky chicken wings, with tomato, soy sauce, Chinese 5 spice and pickled red onions
We’ve only recently discovered chicken wings and are making up for lost time. They are so well priced that they’re well within budget for everyone and they really tap into that has-to-be-picked-up, sauce-on-the-chin street food ethos that really gets us in touch with our food. You will need number of wings per person, 4-6 or so is a good starting point, but they are so cheap that you can afford to enjoy a big pile of them.
Here, we’ve coated them in a marinade and then baked them in the oven so they have a really sticky coating. A key ingredient are the sliced pickled red onions from the Baxters Deli Toppers range, but there are so many other ways you could use them. I can imagine a some on a juicy burger, but they work so well here with the sweet and spicy Chinese influenced sauce.
This is a great recipe for a week night supper; it doesn’t need a long marinating time – throw it all together and get it into the oven. The sweetness of the sauce combines with the onions, and so you absolutely have to remember to scrape round the edges of the baking tray for the crispy bits. You don’t get that from street food.
