Preparation time: 30 Minutes

Smoked Chilli Chicken Wings


  • Chicken Wings (700g to 1kg)
  • Jars of Goodness Smoked Chilli Sauce (3tbs)
  • Freshly cracked black pepper (1tsp)
  • Garlic Powder (1 tbsp)
  • Onion Powder (1 tbsp)
  • Berbere Spice (1 tsp)
  • Smoked Paprika (1 tsp)
  • Dry Mixed Herbs (½ tsp)
  • Olive Oil (¼ cup)
  • Parchment Paper
  • Spring Onions (a dash for garnish)
  • Salt (1tsp)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C (Grill option)/175 degrees C (Fan option).
  2. Ensure that your chicken is brought to room temperature; at least 2 hours before preparation.
  3. Divide the chicken in parts, the drummettes and the flats. Do not discard the wing tips as you can use this for a chicken stock that will come handy in future meals.
  4. Pat them dry and toss into a mixing bowl. Add in all the dry spices followed by ¼ cup of olive oil and mix everything together until well incorporated.
  5. Leave to marinate at least for 30 minutes. For better results overnight will achieve much.
  6. Spread a flat baking tray with parchment paper and arrange the marinated chicken wings evenly. Place them into the oven and leave to cook for 30-45 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and transfer the liquid onto a bowl which you will use for the sauce.
  8. Set the wings aside and work on the sauce.
  9. In a medium sized saucepan, mix half the liquid mixture together with the smoked chilli sauce and pour over the chicken wings.
  10. Crank up the oven to 200 degrees and place the wings closer to the top grill and broil for 5-6 minutes or until you get just enough char on the wings. Be careful not to burn the chicken wings.
  11. Once they’re ready, serve and garnish with medium sliced spring onions and the juice of half a lemon. You can serve this as a snack or accompany it with a side of baked potato wedges.
