Sweet BBQ Wings‘s a Lorraine Pascal recipe. She has some good straightforward easy recipes and I quite enjoy trying them out. I love chicken wings; be they barbequed, oven-baked, braised, deepfried or stewed and these are quite asian-like. 🙂

Recipe from Lorraine’s Fast, Fresh and Easy Food


  • ±1kg mixed chicken wings & drumsticks

For barbecue sauce marinate:

  • 6 squidges of tomato ketchup
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Chinese 5-spice powder
  • 2 squidges of honey

total time


  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Scatter chicken pieces in a large roasting tin.
  3. Put tomato ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce, 5-spice powder and honey in a small bowl.
  4. Add garlic and thyme leaves along with salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil (I didn’t add oil).
  5. Give everything a good stir and pour it over chicken pieces. Toss everything about to evenly coat, settle chicken into a single layer and put in oven to cook for 30 mins.
  6. After chicken has had 30 minus, check to see that it’s cooked, it should be piping hot in the middle with no pinkness. The barbacue sauce should be a sticky coating on chicken.
  7. Serve with Lorraine’s sweetcorn rice and red cabbage slaw.

It smelled so heavenly while they were baking n they tastes exactly as delish as they smelled.. 🙂
