Step into the World of BBQ Chicken

If you’re a fan of chicken, particularly the smoky, caramelised goodness of BBQ, then you’re in for a treat. We’re not just talking about any chicken wings; we’re talking about spicy BBQ chicken wings! Picture this – succulent chicken wings, smothered with a spicy, tangy, and sweet glaze that’s been kissed by the smoky aroma of a barbecue grill. The fiery combination of ginger, garlic, chili, and cumin is balanced beautifully with the sweetness of honey, and all this glorious flavour is amplified by the magic of BBQ sauce.

The Recipe

This recipe is incredibly straightforward, and the ingredients are easy to find. You’ll need:

  • 1 kg Chicken Wings
  • 1½ tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1½ tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Vinegar
  • 1½ tbsp Honey Runny
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil (for brushing)
  • 150 g BBQ Sauce

Start by combining the ginger garlic paste, chili powder, cumin, salt, vinegar, honey, and oil in a large bowl to create a marinade that’s as vibrant as a summer sunset. Add the chicken wings to this heavenly mix and make sure every piece gets an equal share of love. Let this sit for about 20 minutes – enough time to catch up on your favourite show or perhaps read one of our other BBQ chicken recipes.

While your chicken is soaking up all those fantastic flavours, preheat your BBQ to 200°C. Place the marinated wings on a baking rack with a drip tray underneath. A light brushing of oil will help them achieve that irresistible golden hue. Now, let them bake for 25 minutes, turning the pan halfway through.

Once done, remove them from the BBQ and slather with your favourite BBQ sauce. Place them back on the grill for an extra 5 minutes to let that sauce get nice and sticky. Your Spicy BBQ Chicken Wings are now ready to be devoured!

To ensure your wings are cooked to perfection, it’s always good to have a trusty meat thermometer on hand. And to make your grilling experience more comfortable, a nice pair of tongs can be a great help.
