Quick, easy and delicious. Ages 8 to 76 loved these. We added a bit more ketchup and some honey and did thighs as well as wings. There was enough marinade to amply coat 1.5kg of chicken and everyone loved dipping their sweet potato fries in the juice. Just yummy!

Delicious, especially the coleslaw!

Didn't bother with the coleslaw just bought it from the shop and used chicken breast instead of wings as that's what I had in the freezer! Tasted absolutely amazing and have already been requested for dinner again this week. Also served with wedges. Went down a treat!

I have made these wings and the coleslaw so many times, actually most Saturdays. If my dinner guests know I am serving these they go crazy. I don't alter any of the ingredients for the wings but for the coleslaw I add garlic salt, and 2 tbsp of white wine vinegar. I always serve mine nachos consisting of tortilla chips, guacamole, salsa, sour cream and chive, red onion diced small and loads of grated cheddar.... Absolutely AMAZING.....

I made this last night, and it was AMAZING! Alterations I made were: - I used legs and thighs not wings, because they are meatier. I therefore had to cook them for about 5-10 minutes longer, and they could have gone a bit longer if I'd wanted them crispy. - I substituted one spoon of brown sugar for one of honey. - I used garlic puree rather than garlic cloves. - I added one fresh diced chilli. This still did not make it spicy! Just a bit warmer. Glad I did - will probably add two next time! I served this with couscous, which I cooked in chicken stock, and corn on the cob. Absolutely delicious meal and minimal effort. So easy! Pretty inexpensive too if you're going to use the ingredients again. 10/10!

Tasty wings that I'm going to serve cold tomorrow. Didn't do the coleslaw but the chicken is delicious.

I've made this a few times now, the only alteration to the recipe I make is that I add diced fresh chilli to the marinade. I don't bother with the slaw, I serve the chicken with more of the marinade and some long grain rice since the sauce goes really well with rice.

Wings were very tasty. We found the whole raw onion a little overpowering in the slaw, will only add about a quarter of a grated onion next time. Good recipe though

Really easy weekday meal. I've never made the slaw as I'm not a fan of it but the wings and the marinade are delicious. I often use drumsticks and thighs as well.

This is a bit vague for a beginner. What seasoning should I put on it? Thanks, H.

Thanks for your question. Seasoning is simply salt and pepper and you can add to taste. Bear in mind soy sauce can be salty so we'd recommend going easy.

The sauce can become watery once the wings are almost cooked so I take the wings out of the dish, pours the juices and any leftover sauce into a saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. The sauce thickens and I then recoat the wings and give them another 10 minutes cooking on the other side. Watch them carefully now as they will quickly burn. You may still have left over sauce which I have used again the next day.
