main

  • Step 1

    Remove the wing tips and discard (or use for stock making).

Make the marinade

  • Step 1

    Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl, (de-seed the chilli if you don't like heat) add salt and pepper, and turn the wings in it to coat. Cover with cling film and refrigerate overnight. Turn all again.
  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Spread the wings over the surface of a large oven tray so they're not crowded and cook for 30 minutes, turning once during that time to ensure even browning all over. Leave the wings to rest for 5 minutes.

To serve

  • Step 1

    toss the wings in chopped coriander and thinly sliced spring onion before serving with lemon wedges.
