something I haven't made in quite a while.....

....Devilled Chicken Wings.

Have I posted this recipe before?
I don't remember and I'm too lazy to go back through my archives and check.


fresh out of the oven, you can see there's plenty of sauce (gravy?) around the wings because I only bought one kilo instead of the usual two. With two kilos, the wings get that lovely browned barbecued look.
I added carrots, because I like them in this.


On my plate with a potato-broccoli mash.

Here's the recipe:-

  • 2kg chicken wings or drumsticks
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup tomato sauce.

Put chicken wings into a lightly oiled oven-proof pan
Fry onion until beginning to soften (this is where I add rough chopped carrots if I'm using them)
Add everything else  (I whisk it all up in a big jug as I'm measuring, then just pour it onto the onions)
Bring to the boil then simmer for a minute
Pour this mixture over the chicken wings making sure each wing is coated
Bake at 180*C until done to preferred crispness, about 1-1 and a half hours
 Drumsticks will take longer to cook through than wings,
for those I usually put foil over the pan for the first half of cooking time.

When done, the chicken is usually so tender the meat just falls easily from the bones.
This is finger-licking food, have plenty of napkins ready.

As soon as the wings have been served, transfer any leftovers to a fridge container and soak the cooking pan while you're eating.
This makes clean-up so much easier.

  5. Kimmie; this used to be a weekly staple on my menu, until I found out that three of the kids don't like it. I wish they'd told me sooner.

    Windsmoke; another broccoli fan! yay! Too many of my friends don't like it and I can't convert them.

    Jayne; your serving is in the freezer, waiting for you.

    Sarah; mash is a great way to include any other veg. Pumpkin, zucchini, carrot, parsnip, onion is a favourite, garlic too.

  6. I can smell it from here...!
    I wonder if that might tempt our house guest, who seems to exist on nothing but pasta and chips?

  7. Delores; finger-lickin' good.

    Kath; it's worth a try. First find out if she's allergic to any of the ingredients, then have the girls help you make it. That's often enough incentive to have them eat it. Serve it with pasta instead of mash perhaps.

  8. sleepydwarf; freshly bought chicken works so much better for this than frozen pieces. It's also good cold the next day.
