Buffalo wings

It’s National Braai day on Saturday so get out your braai and head off to the supermarket for a whole bunch of chicken wings. These Buffalo wings are simply lip smacking delicious and will be on my braai tomorrow for sure. I may also make the Greek chicken pieces which are seriously easy and OH soo good.

If you like your buffalo wings nice and spicy add some more tabasco or a teaspoon or two of chili flakes to the marinade or leave the tabasco out of you are not feeling fiery.

This marinade works just as well with drumsticks and thighs so keep it as an any day chicken braai marinade.

Happy braai day all.

What you need

200ml Allgold tomato sauce
100ml soy sauce
100ml Vegetable oil
50ml Worcestershire sauce
20ml tabasco
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg yolk

30 to 40 whole chicken wings (you can never have enough0

The process

Joint the chicken wings removing the wing tips and separating each wing into 2 pieces, a mini drumstick looking piece and the middle piece. Toss out the wing tips or freeze them to make a chicken stock when you have enough.

Add all of the marinade ingredients to a large bowl and give a good thorough whisk.

Add the chicken wings and get your hands in there to mix it all up so that every chicken piece is coated in the marinade. Cover the bowl and place them in the fridge overnight or for up to 2 days.

If you are doing them in the oven, cover a grill with tin foil, place the grill in the roasting pan and then lay out your chicken winglets. Cook them under the grill until the skin is blistering and you notice dark patches on the ends. Turn them and grill until the other side is equally blistered and crisp. Take them out of the oven, toss back into the remaining marinade and with a wooden spoon give them all a last little coating. Then back onto the grill, reduce the oven to 180 Celsius and leave them to crisp up for about 15 minutes.

If you are doing them on the braai get your coals nice and hot so that the wings give off a nice sizzle when placed onto the grill. This can be quite challenging if you have a grill that has spaces large enough for a winglet to fall through but fear not, a piece of chicken wire placed over the grill does the trick. Move them around frequently until they are beautifully crisp and then back into the remaining marinade to before serving.

These are really lip smacking delicious and with National Braai day on Saturday, you have got to give them a go and never forget the chicken skewer recipe
