  • 2tbsp vegetable oil

  • 2tbsp each of soy sauce, tomato ketchup and honey
  • 2tsp coarse-grained mustard (optional)




  1. To start this chicken wing recipe set the oven to 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6). Put the chicken pieces in a roasting tin, drizzle with oil and cook for 15 mins.
  2. To make the glaze, mix all the ingredients together (including the mustard, if using). Spoon glaze over the chicken to coat it well. Cook for another 15-20 mins for wings and 25 mins for drumsticks.
  3. Remove the chicken from the tin and scrape the juices into a small pan. Bring to the boil and reduce for a few minutes until thickened and sticky, then pour or brush over the hot chicken.
  4. Serve hot or cold. If serving cold, cook the day before. This dish is best not reheated. Not suitable for freezing.
