Delicious dinner party starters

Hello winter, it seems like only yesterday that we were sipping on Pinot Gris enjoy the warmth of the beach and sunshine and now we are well and truly in winter mode.

 

Winter need not be the reason that you shy away from entertaining guests; it's an excellent time to get the fire going, make some warm snacks and open a bottle of delicious red.

 

And gooey honey glazed chicken wings are a sure-fire way to keep your dinner party guests happy from the get-go as a starter. And the great thing is they are easy to prepare in advance and have ready for the hungry masses when they arrive.

 

What you’ll need:

 

3 Kgs chicken wings

Salt & pepper

2 cups honey

1 cup of soy sauce

4 Tablespoons vegetable oil

4 Tablespoons ketchup

6 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

 

Directions:

 

If wings are whole, remove tips and discard, or freeze to make chicken stock later). Coat with salt and pepper.

 

Combine remaining ingredients in a medium bowl until well mixed.

 

Cooking options:
