Dragon Chicken Wings

Dragon Chicken Wings

This fiery recipe works well with wings but can also be used on any other cut of chicken. An intensely flavorful dish that works well as a starter or as the main course if served with fries and /or a salad. Dragon wings are supposed to be hot/spicy, however you could always cut down on the chilies for a milder flavor.

INGREDIENTS:Chicken Wings 01

1 kg wings
(or any other chicken cuts)
1 red bell pepper/capsicum
3 tbsp. chopped coriander
2 spring onions
2 tsp. vinegar
1/4 cup Mithoo Cooking Oil.
juice of 2 limes
1 tsp. red chilli powder
1 tsp. coriander powder
2 tsp. ginger paste
3 garlic cloves
2 tsp. salt
4-6 red chillies
1 tsp. paprika powder
1 tsp. tomato paste/puree
1/4 tsp. red food colouring


Clean and dry the wings, set them aside.

Put all the other ingredients in a blender jug and blend until smooth. Taste the marinade and adjust seasoning if need be. Pour this marinade over the wings, cover and refrigerate for a few hours or up to overnight.

When ready to cook, remove the wings from the fridge at least half an hour before you cook them so they come to a room temperature. Preheat the oven at 180C. Place the wings on a tray and brush them with some of the marinade sauce. Bake for 20-25 minutes, then remove the tray and turn them over, brush them with some more marinade. Bake for another 20-25 minutes.

Alternatively you can cook then on a bbq grill, turning them over regularly until cooked through. Remember to brush them with the marinade midway through grilling.

For the remainder of the marinade/sauce, just pour it into a small saucepan, add about half a cup of water and simmer until the sauce thickens and is cooked. You can use this to serve with the chicken.

Serve the hot wings with fries, a dipping sauce, salad and cold drink.

Enjoy! 🙂
