Ingredients (makes 12 – 16 chicken wings)
For the marinade:
2 tbsp clear honey
3cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 garlic clove, crushed
11⁄2 tsp Chinese five spice
2 tsp soy sauce
3 tbsp orange marmalade
1⁄2 tsp grated orange zest
1 tbsp sesame oil
12 – 16 chicken wings
1. Mix together all of the marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken. Leave to marinate for at least 2 hours, or overnight if you can, turning occasionally.
2. Once it has marinated, place the chicken on the barbecue over medium-hot coals and cook for about 20 minutes, brushing with any marinade left in the dish as it cooks. If it’s colouring too quickly, move to a cooler part of the barbecue to cook more gently. It’s important you cook the chicken all the way through.
3. The chicken can also be cooked in the oven – Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
4. Transfer the chicken into a roasting tray with a couple of spoonfuls of marinade. Place in the oven for about 40 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with the marinade and juices until thoroughly sticky and golden, adding extra marinade to the tray if necessary.
