Ingredients
  • 20 chicken wings (or 10 wings cut into drumette and wingette with tips removed)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp chilli sauce (tabasco works great here)
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
Instructions
  1. To make the marinade, mince the garlic, and add it to a bowl together with the olive olive, smoked paprika, lemon juice, oregano, salt, pepper, chilli sauce and flakes.

  2. Mix well to get a thick smooth paste.

  3. Pat dry the wings, then coat well with the marinade. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and leave to marinate for at least one hour, longer if possible.

  4. Cover the dripping tray or any other tray you have with kitchen foil to avoid too much mess, and place the oven rack over the tray.

  5. Arrange the wings over the rack, and bake in the preheated oven at 150 degrees Celsius (300 Fahrenheit) for 20 minutes.

  6. Flip the wings onto the other side, then increase the oven temperature to 220 degrees Celsius (425 Fahrenheit).

  7. Bake for a further 30-35 minutes.

  8. Serve hot with your favourite sauce.
