Spicy ‘State of Origin’ Chicken Wings

Spicy 'State of Origin' Chicken Wings
On the 9th July 2014, we were expecting a crowd of friends over to watch the final State Of Origin 2014, and I wanted to make something delicious that was quick and easy. I made 2 types of spicy chicken wings with Afrikoz Spices and they went down well. Both were delicious, however the East was most popular as it was a bit spicier. Both were winners on the night... It's a shame Queensland weren't! 😉
Cuisine: African
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 8-10
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2kg chicken wings trimmed
  • 2tbsp Afrikoz Spices NORTH in 1 bowl
  • 2tbsp Afrikoz Spices EAST in 1 bowl
  • Into each bowl I added:
  • 2tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2tbsp lemon juice
  • 5g crushed garlic
  • Optional: Chopped coriander or parsley for garnish.
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. (I used a large pizza oven).
  2. The trimmed chicken wings weighed 800g. Divide them in half and place 2 large bowls.
  3. Get 2 small bowls, then add one of each type of Afrikoz Spice into a small bowl, then add the olive oil, lemon juice and crushed garlic into each bowl and mix together to combine.
  4. Tip the marinade contents of each small bowl into one of the large bowls and coat the chicken wings.
  5. Tip the contents of each bowl out into an oven tray and spread out evenly.
  6. Place the 2 oven trays into the oven and cook for 45 minutes, turning occasionally, or until cooked and caramelised.
  7. Serve on platters and garnish with chopped coriander or parsley if desired.
This dish can also be cooked on the barbeque or in the oven as desired. If you don't have chicken wings handy, you can substitute other chicken pieces like drummies or drumsticks if you have them on hand.
