Notes

  • Note 1 800 grams is 13 chicken wings (different sizes will vary slightly) 
  • Note 2 if you don't have a large enough jar, you can use a jug and a fork, (stir vigorously). 
  • Note 3 think about it like this: 1) if starving, cook without marinating 2) if having a glass of wine 1st, marinade for 30 mins, 3) if have time, you can marinade overnight 
  • Note 4 the chilli flakes are a great way to add chili flavour in a reliable way. Fresh chili can sometimes be mild and sometimes be HOT, HOT, HOT. For that reason, over time this recipe works as it delivers taste and texture each time. There is no unexpected chili heat to catch you off guard. Using the freshly sliced chili as garnish helps to add the colour and texture with thin slices which deliver the chili factor in a non in your face way.
