Matilda's Recipes

Chicken wings

Serves 4



12 chicken wings


2 small shallots, peeled and roughly chopped 

1tbsp soft brown sugar

4 kaffir lime leaves, torn

2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped 

2 stalks of lemongrass, outer layer removed, roughly chopped 

2cm piece of ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

½ bunch coriander including the stems, chopped 

4tbsp soy sauce 

1 tbsp. rice vinegar

1 tbsp olive or vegetable oil  


To serve:

Chilli sauce

4tbsp sweet chilli sauce

2 spring onions, finely sliced

Peanut/satay sauce

3tbsp smooth peanut butter

1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped or crushed

2tbsp white rice vinegar

1tbsp soy sauce

2tsp soft brown sugar

75ml hot water



  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180Fan. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  • Place all the marinade ingredients in to a blender with the oil and blitz until a paste is formed.

  • Place the chicken wings in a large bowl, pour the mixture over on top and use two large spoons to mix well so all the pieces are evenly coated – the blitzed onion might make your eyes water but it’s worth doing a good job. 

  • Place the chicken in the fridge to marinate for at least half an hour if you can, even better if you can leave it overnight. 

  • Place the chicken wings on the lined baking tray and discard any excess marinade left behind in the bowl.  Cook in the oven on the top shelf for 25-30 minutes, turning half way through and basting with any cooking juices.  

  • While the chicken is cooking you can make up a couple of dipping sauces;  Mix tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce with some fresh spring onions to make it a bit different.  To make the satay sauce simply place all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over a moderate heat and cook until the sugar dissolves and the sauce is nice and smooth – if it gets too thick you can add a little more water.

  • Serve the chicken alongside bowls of the sweet chilli and satay sauces.
