Sticky Lime And Maple Wings


It’s Friday night and chicken wings are the go!

These are a savoury version of lime cordial, if that makes sense??? Very much of the finger licking variety! And did I mention gluten free, egg free and dairy free!

Serves 6-8 depending on sides.


1.2 kegs chicken wings, tips removed and cut in two at the joint

2 limes

30mls olive oil

150mls maple syrup

6 garlic cloves

3 teaspoons salt flakes



In a large zip lock bag, zest and juice the limes. Add the maple syrup and oil.

Crush the garlic and salt in a mortar and pestle and add to the lime.

Pop the chicken into the bag, squish around and leave to marinade in the fridge for 2-6 hours.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade.

Line two baking trays with baking parchment.

Spread the wings out on the prepared sheets, skin side up.

Pour over the excess marinade.

Slide the trays into  the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, basting regularly.

Allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving.
