Bang Bang Numbing Chicken Wings

August 04

Make this spice mix in larger amounts and store it in a jar and you’ll never be too far away from a fresh, sizzling plate of chicken wings. If there are any leftovers (unlikely!) then pop them in a lunch box or pack them up for a picnic – they’re just as good cold as they are hot. Click here for more recipes from Schwartz.

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C/400F/Gas mark 6. In a mixing bowl, combine the baking powder and salt. Add the chicken wings and toss to coat completely. Arrange the chicken wings on a wire rack set over a roasting tin.
  2. Place in the oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked all the way through. Brush with a tablespoon of sunflower oil halfway through the cooking time to ensure a golden brown finish.
  3. Place all the ingredients for the numbing spice mix, apart from the sugar, in a dry frying pan over a medium high heat and cook until toasted and aromatic. Place in a pestle and mortar or coffee grinder with the sugar and bash to a fine powder.
  4. Once the chicken is cooked, place the spice mix, spring onions, chillis and cooked chicken wings in a mixing bowl and toss until the chicken is completely coated. Serve the chicken with a garnish of coriander leaves.
