Oven Baked Chicken Wings with Ginger and Garlic Dressing

Let’s face it who doesn’t like chicken wings. Tender, golden and succulent little morsels, these oven baked chicken wings with ginger garlic dressing literally ‘slip off the bone ‘when cooked. Baked in the oven, then when they’re all golden tossed off with this fabulous ginger garlic dressing from chef David Chang. Salty, sweet, spicy and amazingly good, especially as they’re so quick to put together and perfect for chowing down on watching your favourite game.

We love to serve these wings with a light salad to freshen the palate. Maybe a little rocket, orange, fennel and red onion salad, lightly dressed and seasoned to cut through the spiciness of the chicken wing dressing…..delicious. Try finishing the meal with our coconut and kaffir lime panna cotta for another winning dessert.

Licking your fingers 

Amazingly simple, fast, scrumptious and finger licking good. Chicken wings are our favourite part of the chicken. Growing up on a poultry farm,  we ate more than our fair share of chicken, especially chicken wings. Chicken is just so versatile we’re in love with it as an economical protein that adapts to so many flavours.

Wings are messy! 

It absolutely pays to line your baking sheet with foil or baking paper as oven baked chicken wings release so much fat that caramelises and wants to stick to your baking sheet. No fun cleaning up.  Make sure to cover the base of your baking sheet because no one wants to scrub baked on rendered chicken fat…..Simply line your baking sheet, spray your cake rack rather heavily with oil, bake and throw the paper away. Voilà! ….no mess to clean up and no sticking wings.

Ginger garlic dressing

The ginger garlic dressing couldn’t be easier to make when you use a food processor to finely chop the ginger and garlic into uniformly sized pieces. Using a teaspoon to ‘peel’ the ginger makes life easier as it scrapes the skin away with each swipe.
