Chicken wing dippers

recipe image


  • 1 kg chicken wings, wing tips removed and wings split into two pieces
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sunflower oil


  • STEP 1

    Put the wings in a large bowl and toss with 1 tsp salt, the cornflour and baking powder – this will help the skin go crispy when baking. Chill, covered, for at least 1 hr, or ideally overnight.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Toss the wings with the oil, then arrange in a single layer on a wire rack set over a baking tray. Bake for 25-30 mins until golden, then turn the wings over and bake for 25-30 mins more until crisp. Transfer to a platter with sauces for dipping (see tips below), or put a large bowl on the table next to each sauce and toss the wings in the sauces.



Put 100ml water in a small pan with 1 tbsp light brown soft sugar, 1 tbsp soy sauce, and ½ finger-length piece of ginger, peeled and finely grated. Simmer, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Combine 1 tsp cornflour with 1 tbsp water and quickly whisk into the sauce, then whisk in 2 tsp white wine vinegar. Tip into a bowl. Scatter with 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds just before serving.


Mix 5 tbsp sweet chilli sauce with the juice of ½ lime and 1 tsp mild curry powder.
