Spicy chicken wings

Hi Guys!!


Remember a couple of days ago, I made the Ghanian Chicken Light Soup with some chicken wings? Well, I had some chicken wings that I didn't cook with that day, and even though I wasn't so sure exactly what I was going to do with it, I just left it in the freezer. 
So, two days ago, I was making my shopping list, and then I looked into the freezer and what do I see.... the chicken wings!! I had completely forgotten about them... but not for long. 

I decided to make some spicy chicken wings, to eat with my 'roti'. The spicy rub for the chicken is pretty much the only thing that take a lot of ingredients, but you can always add as much or as little ingredients as you want.


Its so juicy and tender. You get the tartness of the lemon as you bite into it, the chicken is well seasoned and makes every bite a memory. Then of course the yummy spicy sauce around it just makes it the perfect spicy chicken wing.

Heres how I made it.

Ingredients

  • Coriander leaves
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 1tbsp of curry powder
  • 1/2 a lime
  • 1/3 of a ginger root
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1-2 chilli peppers (depends on how spicy you like it)
  • 1 tsp of ketchup
For the chicken

  • 6 chicken wings (raw)
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of salt
Others

  5. Transfer the spice mixture to a pot and bring to a boil. Add the coconut milk and allow it to reduce. The sauce should  be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
