Chicken wings are a great snack because you really can't mess them up. These are coated with a buttery, golden syrup glaze and are absolutely delicious. If you cook enough and add some veg, they can be dinner, too.

Ingredients

2kg chicken wings

2 tsp salt

3 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp butter

¼ cup golden syrup

2 tbsp soy sauce

Method

1. Cut the chicken wings through the joint separating the mid-wing and wing tip from the drumette. Toss the chicken pieces with the salt and baking powder. Spread in a single layer on a baking tray and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight.

2. Heat your oven to 220C fan-forced (240C conventional) and roast the chicken wings for 40 minutes, turning occasionally, until well browned. While the wings are roasting, combine the butter, golden syrup and soy sauce in a small pan. Bring to a boil and stir to combine. Pour the mixture over the wings, stir to coat and roast for a further 5-10 minutes before serving.

Adam's tip: The mix of baking powder and salt dries the outside of the chicken wings to give them a crisp skin. Do it the previous night, or even before you leave for work, and they'll be ready to throw into the oven as soon as you get home.
