CHICKEN

These are finger-licking’ good chicken wings with a mega kick! If you love a grilled chicken wing and can handle the heat, then this one’s for you. I love to serve these at a BBQ (with a warning label on) alongside a fresh salad – a favourite of mine to counteract the heat is chopped mango, lime and mint; you could also do the same with some pineapple or even some cucumber, which is the universal spicy-food-extinguisher.

Used alongside the Smoky BBQ Memphis rub, the Ghost Pepper not only provides a great kick of heat but a wonderfully fruity, chilli flavour that works so well with the smoky flavours of the rub plus the charred, grilled taste you get from the grill.

Ingredients

  • 1 kg chicken wings
  • 1.5 tbsp The Spice People’s Memphis Smoky BBQ Rub
  • 1/4 of a whole,or more if dare! The Spice People’s Ghost Pepper, chopped finely into flakes
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 2 kg chicken wings
  • 3 tbsp The Spice People’s Memphis Smoky BBQ Rub
  • 1/2 of a whole, or more if dare! The Spice People’s Ghost Pepper, chopped finely into flakes
  • 4 tbsp olive oil

Method

  1. Combine the ghost pepper flakes and BBQ rub in a large bowl with the olive oil and mix to make a paste. Add your chicken wings and toss to coat. Place covered in the fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Heat your griddle pan or BBQ to med-high heat. Place the wings on and grill for about 10-12 minutes, or until cooked through, turning frequently to ensure the spices don’t burn.

    Serve these at a BBQ (with a warning label on) alongside a fresh salad – a favorite of mine to counteract the heat is chopped mango, lime, and mint; you could also do the same with some pineapple or even some cucumber, which is the universal spicy-food-extinguisher.
