Superb low carb finger food
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Marinating time 2 hrs
Total Time 3 hrs 55 mins
Servings 4 people

Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 kilos Chicken wings
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper optional if you don't like spice
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • salt and pepper

Instructions
 

  • Put everything apart from the chicken wings into a baking tray.
  • Mix together using your hand to form a paste and cover the bottom of the tray.
  • Add the raw chicken wings and coat them all over and spread out in a single layer.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • Take out of the fridge an hour before you start to cook.
  • Pre heat the oven to 200° fan, 220° electric or gas mark 7.
  • Cook for 25 minutes then pour off the cooking liquid into a small saucepan (this is optional but it tastes great).
  • Put the wings back in the oven for a further 20 minutes.
  • Bring the cooking liquid to boiling then simmer for 15 minutes.
  • The wings are even better if they are allowed to rest 15 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with homemade coleslaw (see the link below) and the reserved and cooked sauce.
