Fast Food on a Friday: Finger licking chicken wings

Now I will admit,  on paper/on webpage this recipe looks like nothing special.  Don't let it fool you.  Reminiscent of Nando's Lemon Herb chicken this one will get an encore performance in your house.    My kids were bitterly disappointed that I didn't have enough for thirds, and our playdate visitor proclaimed that she wanted to eat these every time she visited.

Great for a regular meal or BBQ offering.  Super yummy and indeed, finger licking good.

1 1.2 kg chicken wings
2 tb olive oil
Juice of three lemons
1 1/2 tb fresh oregano leaves
1 1/2 tb fresh thyme leaves
1 1/2 tb fresh rosemary leaves
4 cloves garlic
Pinch Pepper
Pinch chilli flakes


In a mortar and pestle, mix together the garlic, olive oil, thyme, oregano and rosemary.  Pound until a chunky paste.

In a plastic container or ziplock bag, place the lemon juice, chicken wings and garlic/herb mix in and marinade for about 1 hour minimum.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees c and layout your chicken wings on an oiled baking tray (with a lip) sprinkle with a chilli flakes and pepper.  Alternatively you could place on an oiled grill either on a BBQ or the stove.

Place in oven for 30-40 minutes until golden.  Serve with baked potatoes and salad or anything you like!

Psst, I haven't forgot about our Sourdough adventure, see you back after lunch!
