  • 1kg chicken wings, tips removed and cut in half at the joint
  • vegetable oil
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges


  • 100ml fish sauce
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 lime, juiced


  • STEP 1

    Whisk all the marinade ingredients in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved.

  • STEP 2

    Add the chicken wings, coat well and chill for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.

  • STEP 3

    Remove the wings and pat dry with kitchen paper. Add the marinade ingredients to a pan and bring to a boil over a medium heat. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until syrupy.

  • STEP 4

    Heat a barbecue until medium-high (or for oven cooking, see cook’s notes).

  • STEP 5

    Add the wings to a bowl and toss with 1 tbsp of oil and some seasoning.

  • STEP 6

    Grill for 20-25 minutes, turning regularly, until really chargrilled and crisp.

  • STEP 7

    Remove from the barbecue and toss with the reduced marinade. Serve with lime wedges.

Alternatively, heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Drain the chicken wings from the marinade, pat dry and add to a shallow baking tray. Roast for 45 minutes, turning halfway. Toss through the reduced marinade before serving.
