Chicken wings 2

This is the second wing marinade recipe I said I would post.  I used about 2 kilos of wings this time as feeding the whole family.

The ingredients are as follows for sweet lemon and rosemary mustard marinade

2 kilos of wings cut into nibbles
1 finely chopped onion
4 cloves of garlic
zest of 2 lemons
1-2 tablespoons of honey
1-2 tablespoons of mustard  (I used dijon but any style mustard will work)
Big slug of olive oil
2 sprigs of rosemary
Maldon salt and pepper

Combine all the marinade ingredients and coat the wings and leave for about 2 hours before baking.

Meanwhile prepare your roast potatoes.  I parboil the potatoes first so they have a fluffy edge, which crisp up nicely when roasted.  Lots of olive oil and salt and pepper as well.

Again the secret to good wings when you have a sweet marinade is to crowd them in the baking dish so they don't burn and dry out.  Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes on 180 C.  Turn and baste 2 or 3 times during this time for even coloring.

To serve, put your roast potatoes on a large serving dish and pour on the chicken wings and all the great sauce that has formed in the bottom of the pan.
Eat with a simple dressed green salad.
So simple and so satisfying.
