We’ve probably cooked over 500 in the last month . . . at hugely(?!) prestigious events like the launch for ‘Family Camping Cookbook’, the Pitshanger Party in the Park, and the Little Ealing Summer Party . . . and as they’ve all been guzzled to mass appreciation, we thought we’d better divulge our secret recipe!
Smoked paprika has a very distinctive flavour and a rich aroma, but don’t worry if you don’t have any – just use pepper instead. It won’t be the same, but it will still be very good. . .
Serves:4, Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus 15 minutes marinating, Cooking time: about 15 minutes
INGREDIENTS: 16 chicken wings, 1 tsp smoked paprika, juice of 1 lemon, 2 garlic cloves, crushed, ½ tsp salt
To make the marinade, put all of the ingredients in a plastic bag. Add the chicken wings and seal the bag. Leave to marinate in a cool box for15 minutes.
Remove the chicken wings from the marinade. Cook over a medium heat on a barbecue or in a griddle pan for about 15 minutes, turning once, until the meat is beautifully charred and really crispy. If you’re using a barbecue, cook the chicken over coals that have burnt down quite significantly to prevent the skin from burning. Serve hot with Potato Salad.
