1kg  free-range chicken wings, jointed and wing tips removed

120g  self-raising flour

2 Tbsp  baking powder

Egg fried rice




3 long   red chillies, sliced into rings

2 Tbsp   rice vinegar

A pinch of  sugar

A large pinch of salt


Sauce Mix

120g   Lee Kum Kee Sweet Hoisin Sauce

2 Tbsp  tomato puree

80g  unsalted butter

2 cloves  garlic, peeled & minced

1.5 Tbsp   rice vinegar



  1. Preheat the oven to 230°C / 210°C fan / gas mark 8.
  2. Mix the chillies with 2 tablespoon of vinegar, sugar and salt with chicken.
  3. Add the flour and baking powder to a large bowl, add the chicken wings and toss well until coated.
  4. Place the chicken wings on a baking tray lined with baking paper, leaving a space between each. Bake for 20 minutes, then turn the pieces over and bake for another 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, add all sauce mix to a saucepan. Place on a medium heat and stir every 30 seconds until the butter has fully melted and incorporated into the sauce. Bubble gently for 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  6. When the wings are ready, place them into a large mixing bowl. Add the sauce incrementally, tossing the wings in between, until they are glossy and glazed. Drain, then spoon the pickled red chillies over the wings. Serve with egg fried rice and a cucumber salad.
