A recipe perfect for the summer!
There is nothing like getting your fingers (and face!) dirty whilst eating sweet, sticky and spicy chicken wings. These fruity versions are so delicious, you might want to cook extra.

400g chicken wings, I like to remove some of the skin using kitchen scissors or you can buy the wings without the end bits which are mostly skin
4 tbs. The Spice Tailor Original Mango Chutni
1 ½ tsp. each ginger and garlic pastes (I make them fresh by grating them)
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
¼-½ tsp. red chilli powder
½ tsp. smoky sweet paprika
½ tsp. garam masala
sea salt and black pepper to taste
Except for the chicken wings, mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and season well to taste. It should taste a bit salty. Prick the chicken wings all over with a knife. Add them to the marinade and toss well. For best flavour, cover the bowl with cling film and marinate in the fridge overnight.
Bring back to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 180C. Place the chicken in a snug fitting oven tray. Bake for about 18-20 minutes. Turn the oven up to 200C/400C, baste with any marinade left in the bowl or that accumulates in the pan or brush with the mango chutni. Stir often to mix well and cook until the sauce is sticky. Check they are done by checking the juices run clear when you pierce the thickest part with a skewer. Serve with any extra pan juices spooned over the top.
