  • 1 small onion, finely diced 
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • a pinch celery salt
  • 3 tbsp sriracha hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1kg chicken or duck wings, tips removed and cut in half


  • 100g blue cheese, crumbled
  • 100ml buttermilk
  • chopped to make 1 tbsp chives
  • a dash Worcestershire sauce


  • STEP 1

    Fry the onion, garlic and fennel seeds in 1 tbsp oil until soft. Allow to cool a little, then tip into a large bowl and mix in the paprika, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, sriracha, honey and soy. Add the chicken or duck wings and mix. Cover with clingfilm and chill for at least 6 hours, or, ideally, overnight.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Take the wings out of the marinade and spread them out evenly on a baking tray. Drizzle over ½ the remaining marinade, and cook for 30 minutes.

  • STEP 3

    To make the dip, blend the cheese and buttermilk together, then add the chives and Worcestershire sauce and set aside until ready to serve.

  • STEP 4

    Take the wings out of the oven and add the rest of the marinade. Turn the oven up to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and put the wings back in for a further 20 minutes, turning them after 10 minutes, until sticky.

  • STEP 5

    Plate up and serve immediately, with a pot of the blue cheese dip.
