Prep Time – 10 minutes
Cooking Time – 40 Minutes
1 large garlic clove
¾ tsp salt
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp hoisin sauce
3 tbsp mild honey
½ tsp sesame oil
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1kg chicken or chicken wings
2 tbsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted
1 shallot, finely chopped
Lemon wedges, to serve
Preheat oven to 220°C. Line a large shallow baking pan with foil and lightly oil foil.
Mince the garlic and mash to a paste with salt using a large heavy knife.
Transfer garlic paste to a large bowl and stir in soy sauce, hoisin, honey, oil, and cayenne. Set aside a quarter of the sauce, to coat the wings once cooked. Use remainder to coat wingettes.
Arrange wingettes in 1 layer in the baking pan and roast, turning over once, until cooked through, about 35 minutes.
Transfer wingettes to a large bowl and mix through the reserved sauce. Arrange the chicken on a serving plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds and shallots.
Serve with lemon wedges
