Spicy Chicken Wings


It’s interesting how a one spice mixture can be versatile.  Had first used this mixture to make spicy potatoes in the Lamb Cutlets with Spicy Potatoes recipe, then used the same spice to make the Spicy Sweet Potato and Chicken Wings.  Last Saturday I made spicy chicken wings with the same ingredients. Unlike the sweet potato and potatoes, I marinated the chicken wings for an hour and placed the lemon juice on the wings before baking.


10 chicken wings

¼ cup olive oil

1 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp turmeric

¼ tsp chili flakes (add more for a Spicer kick)

1 clove garlic crushed

2 tbsp. lemon juice



In a bowl add the oil and spices and mix. Place the chicken wings in the bowl and mix with the spices.  Let it rest for an hour.  Feel free to leave it longer.

Preheat oven to 180ºC.

Line baking tray with none stick baking paper.

Add the lemon juice to the chicken wings before baking.  Place chicken wings  on the tray and bake for 30  minutes or until crispy.

Serve with salad.



Serve 2

If you don’t have mustard seeds, use mustard powder.
