I used to hate chicken wings. I just didn’t ‘get’ them. I mean they were small, fatty, fiddly & had no meat on them. To much effort for too little reward. Guess what I have since discovered? Well, I am no longer the fat-phobe I was 5 years ago so wings hit the spot now with my fat loving AND those small, crappy, meatless wings that I hated were probably coming from those poor caged, factory farmed chickens that don’t ever get to flap their darn wings! These days, my free range wings are meaty & big because these birds have been having a cool old time, hanging out in the sunshine, flapping those wings & eating whatever the hell they damn please not some weird-ass corn & soy food that they were NOT designed to eat. Now I freaking love wings so I present to you the easiest recipe of all time. You are going to freaking love these! I love them so much that I even eat them for breakfast sometimes.
1 cup BBQ Sauce plus 1/2 cup reserved for later
1 kg free range chicken wings
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch salt & pepper
Preheat the oven to 150C. Place all the ingredients into a big bowl and mix well to coat the wings completely. On a wire rack with a tray underneath place the wings in a single layer. Bake for 30-40 mins. Remove from oven, turn the heat up to 180C & use a basting brush if you have one to coat the wings with the extra BBQ sauce. Pop them back in the oven for one last crisp up for 15 mins. Remove and devour. You are welcome.1
