Hot Thermomix Chicken Wings with Hot Sauce

Oh boy, these babies are hot!

If you love a bit of heat in your food, you’re going to love these Hot Thermomix Chicken Wings with Hot Sauce. The great thing about chicken wings is that they are an easy crowd pleasing finger food, cost-effective and really tasty.

We prepared these chicken wings by soaking them in buttermilk first, but you can also brine them, or just go without the soak if you are short on time. We steamed them in the Varoma first which made them deliciously juicy, and then cooked them by shallow frying and AirFrying (we tried both ways). Of course you could oven bake the chicken wings as well.

We featured these in Episode 72 of the podcast.

We have trialled this with 1kg of chicken wings, but of course you could make it go further. It makes 2 medium sized jars of hot sauce… so that really goes a long way!

These got consumed far too quickly to take a photo. How hot were they? About 3 Coronas hot.
