Sweet and Sticky Chicken Wings

I'm currently reading
The Kitchen Diaries by Nigel Slater and realised that he really loves his chicken wings as there will always be one recipe popping up every month or so. It got me hankering for some hence I decided to make them one night. It's probably not the best season for chicken as everyone is running scared from the bird flu panic but somehow it hasn't hit me yet and I am still sub-conciously eating it still.

The recipe for these chicken wings are extremely simple and best of all, easy to whip from items like honey, lemon and grain mustard which I always have lurking in my fridge. Another great thing about it is all you need to do is bung them in the oven and wait for the yummy smells to come from the oven, turn them once and then you have dinner all ready to be eaten in front of the television. My wings were not as dark as the picture in the book as I messed up my oven settings. However they turned out to be very nice especially with the honey mustard sauce.

Sweet and Sticky Chicken Wings (Serves 2 to 3)

12 chicken wings (abt 600grams)
2 heaped tablespoons grain mustard
1 heaped tablespoon runny honey
1 large juicy lemon
3 large cloves of garlic

Set oven to 220C/Gas Mark 7. Check the chicken wings to make sure there are no stray feathers and place them in a roasting tin. Mix mustard and honey with the juice from the lemon. You will get approximately 5 tablespoons of juice from the lemon. Peel the garlic, crush and add it to the honey mixture with a grinding of pepper and salt. Toss the wings in the honey mixture and roast for forty minutes. Turn them over and continue for ten minutes.

aprilcherrie - they are yummy.

fashionasia - they have tiny brown seeds inside unlike the smooth yellow mustard you get.

piggy - hey, great minds think alike. Yes, it was very delish. I think I will be rediscovering chicken wings with Nigel Slater.

dragon city - sorry but never mind, can eat them tday.

fatboybakes - thanks for the tip. I saw them but I already got the book already so I was damn upset abt missing out on a great deal.

cath - chicken wings are addictive, I can understand why Nigel Slater has a love affair with them too.
