  • Take the wings out of the fridge for 1 hour before cooking.
  • Cook at 160oC for 45 minuites.

  • Allow to rest for 15 minutes, chop herbs and spring onions and sprinkle over the top to serve.


One of my absolute favourite things and so easy to make. You can marinate th Ewings over night if you like but you can just go for it if you can't wait, you will still get a lot of flavour from these wings and make sure you have some bread, a salad and a bowl of sour cream on the side.
