There is nothing better than home made, including BBQ sauce. I made chicken wings on tv today and they are always a hit. This is low budget crowd-pleasing party food and this sauce works perfectly with spare ribs or drum sticks.
Trim the wings, remove excess fat and cut off the tips. Keep the tips and extra chicken remnants to make broth or stock. Cut the rest of the wing in half and you should end up with the wingette and drumette.
I use demerara sugar today with 1/3 less calories as stevia is incorporated into the sugar crystals and you would not know the difference.
You will need:
3/4 cup Ketchup [or on tv today I used tinned chopped tomatoes]
1/2 cup Apple Organic Vinegar [or you can use any vinegar that happens to be in your store cupboard]
2 tablespoons Worchester Sauce
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1/2 cup soft Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder OR 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 inch fresh ginger [optional]
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes [optional, leave out if you do not like spicy food]
Sprinkle the chicken wings generously with salt, pepper.
Mix all the BBQ sauce ingredients and use and blend the ingredients for the bbq sauce in a liquidizer or food processor until the mixutre is smooth and even. Marinate overnight. Prepare an ovenproof tray with cooking spray. Place the chicken pieces on the try and spray them again with cooking spray.
Bake at 200 C for 49 minutes until they are crispy.
Serve hot or cold.
