Need something quick and easy for a mid-week meal? Run out of ideas? Bored?
Then I think I may have found an answer. Actually ‘Good Food’ magazine found the answer for me.
My family loves spicy food and especially the combination of spicy and sweet, so when I came across this recipe it went straight into my ‘Recipes I’m going to try one day’ folder.
That day came sooner than I thought….
Sweet and Spicy Wings with Summer Slaw (Serves 4)
Recipe adapted from ‘Good Food magazine’ July 2011.
4 tbsp curry paste (I used Pataks Tikka paste)
3 tbsp mango chutney
1 kg chicken wings
200g bag radishes, sliced thinly
1 cucumber, halved lengthways and sliced
small bunch mint, roughly chopped
juice of 1 lemon
cooked rice to serve (optional)
Start by preheating your oven- 200deg. C or 180deg. C if you have a fan oven like me.
Mix the curry paste with 2 tbsp of the mango chutney in a big bowl, throw in the chicken wings and mix well.
Put them in a single layer on a large baking tray and roast for 40-45 minutes.
While the wings are cooking, mix the cucumber, radish and mint, remaining mango chutney and the lemon juice.
Serve with cooked rice if you like.
Marks out of ten: 7.
Would I make it again: The chicken wings – yes definitely. The slaw – yes, with a few changes.
Would I do anything differently: I’d only use a tiny sprig of mint as it was really overpowering in the salad.
I used about an extra tbsp of mango chutney in the salad as we like things sweet.
