My boyfriend loves these, and he is a bit tricky. I did by accidently make it with drumsticks first, but that works also! And it's obviously not meant to be that healthy, serve with a salad, or make as a treat. I slightly struggle with the glaze - how long should I keep trying to make it glazey? It wasn't amazing the second time round, but he loved the sauce on chips so no de-stars for you!

These are my kids favourite chicken wings dish. They have become a weekly thing, along with oven chips and corn on the cob. Still healthier and a lot cheaper than a take away!

1 litre of Cola and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a main dish ... I wonder why our European neighbours don't have the same weight and tooth decay issues... BBC Good Food, please stop promoting ridiculous suggestions that you market as "recipes".
