Here's a yummy, inexpensive, weekend dish – get some chicken wings, remove the skin and marinated them overnight with a little soy sauce, vinegar and spices, the longer they marinate the better.You can easily adjust the heat to suit your family's taste and you also can use any part of the chicken you wish, but we love eating wings in my house.

  9. 1/4 cup honey

  • Method:

  1. Season wings  with ground  garlic and ginger. Place in a large ziplock bag or container and add the soy sauce,salt and marinate overnight (the longer the better).

* chilly paste:

  • 100g dried red chilli, cut (with scissors) and soaked in hot water for about 20 minutes.
  • Drain the chillies and grind in a blender/food processor with enough white or palm vinegar to get a smooth paste. You can also add little salt.
  • Heat the 100 ml oil in a deep wok or saucepan, then fry the chilli paste on medium heat initially for about 5 minutes until fragrant.
  • Let cool and store in a clean jar in the fridge, lasts up to a month. You can even freeze until needed, in ice cube trays would be perfect, as you can use a little at a time as needed.
