  • Easy

Chicken wings make the best comfort food. Serve with homemade fries and a quick slaw of white cabbage and red onion and blue cheese - dolcelatte works well.


Toss the slaw again, then serve with the wings and fries.



  • potatoes 400g, peeled and cut into skinny fries
  • chicken wings 500g, halved at the joint and tips removed
  • butter 50g, melted
  • hot pepper sauce 2–3 tbsp
  • paprika ½ tbsp
  • celery salt ¼ tsp
  • olive oil


  • blue cheese (such as dolcelatte) 50g, crumbled
  • half-fat soured cream 100ml
  • mayonnaise 1 tbsp
  • white cabbage ¼ small, shredded
  • red onion ½ small, thinly sliced


  • Step 1

    Put the fries into a bowl of cold salted water and leave for 30 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Toss the chicken wings with the butter, hot sauce, paprika and celery salt, and leave to marinate for 30 minutes.

  • Step 3

    To make the slaw, mash the blue cheese, soured cream and mayo. Toss with the cabbage and red onion, season and leave to sit until you need it.

  • Step 4

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Drain the potatoes and dry really well on kitchen paper. Toss with a good splash of olive oil and spread on a non-stick baking tray in a single layer. Put in the top half of the oven and cook for 50–55 minutes, giving them a stir occasionally. Season them when cooked. Put the wings on a separate baking tray, sit below the fries and cook for 40–45 minutes until crisp and golden.

  • Step 5

    Toss the slaw again, then serve with the wings and fries.
