Crispy Roasted Chicken Wings

By: Raquel Neofit

I always keep chicken wings in my freezer; they are the ultimate weeknight dinner or fun weekend fare. As long as you have staple marinating ingredients in your pantry and chicken wings in the freezer, you will always have a tasty dinner!



Prep time

Cook time



  • 3 tbsp good-quality tomato sauce or chutney
  • ¼ cup tamari
  • 2 tbsp chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp lemongrass paste
  • 3 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp cracked pepper
  • 1.2kg pack frozen chicken wings


  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Place all ingredients except for the chicken wings in a large bowl and mix well.
  • Add the chicken wings to the marinade and rub it into the wings.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper (trust me, you do not want to have to scrub that tray afterwards) and lay the wings out in a single layer.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 35-40 mins or until cooked through, dark and sticky.
  • Tip: To defrost the wings quickly without using a microwave, place the unopened pack in your sink and cover it with cold water. They’ll defrost in a third of the time.
