Sticky Chicken Wings with a Spring Onion & Celery Blue Cheese Dip
(serves 3-4 as a starter)
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 35 minutes
For the chicken
4 tbsp tomato purée
4 tbsp honey
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp mustard
½ tsp chilli flakes (optional)
10 chicken wings
For the dip
5 spring onions, roughly chopped
3 celery stalks, roughly chopped
100g sour cream
100g crème fraîche
75g mild blue cheese
1tsp Worcestershire sauce
Extra celery sticks and Little Gem lettuce leaves cut in half vertically
Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan.
Combine all of the chicken sauce ingredients in a small pan and bubble for a few minutes until it becomes thick. Put the chicken wings into a dish and pour the sauce over, toss well so the chicken is completely coated. Tip into a roasting dish and cook for 35-40 minutes, turning and basting twice during cooking.
While the chicken is cooking whizz together all of the dip ingredients in a blender until combined but not completely smooth. Taste and season. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
When the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a serving platter with a bowl of blue cheese sauce and some celery sticks and Little Gem wedges for dipping.
