Dude Food · Sticky Chicken Wings

Food

This afternoon we share our third recipe from the mastermind behind Pope Joan and The Pie Shop, chef Matt Wilkinson.

Over the last couple of weeks Matt’s shared some classic (Chicken and Leek) and not so classic (Spag bol!) pies, but today we’re moving to a whole new level of comfort food – Sticky Chicken Wings! Matt gives us his version of this finger-lickin’ dish that’s sure to have the whole family/group grinning.

Dan Murphy’s beer expert Kirrily Waldhorn, is also on hand with the perfect beverage to wash down this guilty pleasure!

RECIPE

Who doesn’t love Sticky Chicken Wings?

These aren’t the Southern USA-influenced, deep-fried kind, but instead are oven baked, with the main heat coming from pepper and mustard. And they’re such a winner for a movie night with family and friends!

This glaze is also great with pork or beef ribs too, but *warning* you’ll need a napkin, a water bowl for finger-dipping, and perhaps (definitely) a cold beer.

 

Ingredients

Serves 4

1kg free range chicken
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup cider vinegar
1 Tbsp caster sugar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
Big pinch of cracked black pepper
Big pinch of Cayenne pepper
Big pinch of salt
1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
1 tsp butter

Method

Preheat oven to 180c.

Place the chicken wings in a pot, cover with water and bring to the boil. Turn down to a simmer for 12 minutes, turn off the heat and let sit.

For the glaze, mix all other ingredients (except the butter) in a pot and reduce to 1/3.

Add butter, then strain chicken wings (you can keep the liquid to freeze and use as chicken stock at a later stage.)

Add wings to the reduced glaze, mix thoroughly then place wings on a baking tray and bake for 22 minutes, shaking tray every 5 minutes.

Serve with napkins.

 

Next month, Matt Wilkinson will release his  third cookbook, ‘Mr and Mrs Wilkinson’s How It Is At Home’, which is co-written with wife Sharlee.

 

PAIR WITH

Hawkers Pilsner 300ml ($21.99/6 pack, $69.90/ 24 case)

Very few could say they have never indulged in a plate of sticky chicken wings and a beer. This is definitely one of the classic beer/food pairings!

Dan Murphy’s beer expert Kirrily Waldhorn recommends a beer that will cut through the sticky sweetness of this dish, and also cleanse the palate. The Hawkers German-style Pilsner is up to the challenge.’With a tonne of German noble hops imparting just the right amount of spice and herbaceous characters along with a whopping 50 IBU (international bitterness units), this Pilsner provides the much-needed contrast’ explains Kirrily. ‘This pairing transforms the classic wings-and-beer combo to a whole new flavour sensation.’
