Quick, easy and tasty - the addition of spring onion, ginger and garlic made them a little more interesting. A bit of chilli doesn't go amiss either

why sauce the cucumber separately? The cucumber in the picture doesn`t appear to have any of the sticky sauce on it anyway!!??

Having sampled wings across the world these were ranked up there with the best! Delicious and so incredibly simple!

Yum! Yum! Yum! The best sticky glazed chicken ever (according to my husband). I cooked mine for 20 mins, then basted, then basted every 10mins after that - for a total cooking time of 50mins. Loved by my 6 year old - forget the rice and cucumber - this is perfect finger food - sure to become a favourite for parties!

I didn't like this recipe at all. I halved the recipe as I was only serving for two and wasn't impressed. Despite me doing everything to the letter, they were fairly standard.

It could well have been the quality of the chicken wings which is why I have rated 3 star. Even so, I didn't really like the coating anyway. Sorry!

Was excited about this recipe given the positive reviews but we were not impressed with the results ... one ruined roasting dish and a rather salty dinner.

I was only interested in the chicken for a casual group supper. What can I say except absolutely finger lickin' sensational!
