Ingredients

  • 1 kg Chicken wings

Dry Rub

  • 2 tsp Cumin seeds toasted and ground or powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp Chilli powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dried oregano or Italian seasoning

Glaze

  • 2 tbsp Dark soft brown sugar The darker the more barbecue the taste
  • 100 grams Tomato ketchup The base of many sauces
  • 2 tbsp Cider vinegar I used white
  • 2 tbsp Runny honey Don't use your best
  • 1 tbsp English honey I used dijon
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce Kikkoman obviously
  • 1 tsp Hot sauce I used sweet chilli

Instructions

  1. Prepare the wings. Dry them then cut in half along the joint. I was surprised this made a difference. Set the oven to 200C/180C fan.

  2. Mix the spice rub ingredients and crush in a pestle and mortar. Coat the chicken wings in the dry rub. Put in the oven in a tray covered with foil for 30 minutes, turning halfway.

  3. Simmer the glaze mix for 5 minutes until slightly thick. Coat the wings in the glaze and then return to the oven of put on a barbecue for 10 minutes or so. Top with chopped spring onion.

  4. Feel free to make substitutions. The second time I made this I added a little liquid smoke to the glaze for example. The basic method remains the same.

  5. Serve with white rice (Nishiki in your rice cooker) or potato wedges, and a side vegetable like sweetcorn, charred on the BBQ if you like.
