Pat the wings dry with kitchen paper. Sprinkle baking powder and braai salt over them then put them in an open dish in the fridge.

Prepare the kettle braai – you need a small heap of hot coals. Drizzle the chilli oil over the chicken and cook the wings for 45 – 60 minutes with the lid on. Turn them regularly until they’re crisp and golden brown. (Or bake in an open dish in the oven at 200° C.)

In the meantime, combine the rest of the ingredients in a small potjie on the side of the grid. Bring to a boil. Let the marinade simmer until the liquid is reduced by half.

When the wings look ready, baste them with the marinade and braai for another 5 minutes.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
