Recipe: Crispy baked BBQ Sambal chicken wings


There’s probably no such thing as guilt-free chicken wings… but at least these ones aren’t fried?? Don’t worry, they’ve still got that sexy crispiness to satisfy your naughty wing desires. This is a tasty little snack to knock up with fairly minimal effort… (as with most of our recipes)



900g chicken wings

1 tbsp baking powder (NOT bicarbonate of soda)

1 tsp garlic powder


2 tbsp sambal

5 tbsp BBQ sauce

1 tsp salt

couple splashes of lime juice (fresh if you have it!)


Preheat oven to Fan 180°C | Electric 200°C | Gas Mark 6


  • Pat the chicken wings dry with some kitchen roll
  • Coat in baking powder and garlic powder and cover as much of the surface as possible
  • Spread out on lined baking tray – no overlapping!
  • Place on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 40 minutes


  • Mix up all the sauce ingredients in a bowl, have a taste and add more heat if you can handle it
  • … that’s it

All together

  • Once the wings are cooked and crispy, take out the oven and brush the sauce alllllll over them
  • Serve up immediately!
