In Episode 72, we bring you some great recipes for Thermomix chicken wings. Chicken wings are a crowd pleasing finger food, a cheap option for a snack or meal, and great ‘man food’, as Joe calls it. We cover three different spice combos, a hot sauce, marinading techniques and cooking styles.

Here are the recipes we chose this week:
Recipe 1 – Hot Thermomix Chicken Wings with Hot Sauce (from The 4 Blades)
Like it spicy? These babies are for you! We steamed these first before crisping them up – we trialled them in the Air Fryer and also shallow frying them (our preference was the AirFryer), but you could also cook them in the oven. The sauce makes heaps (about 2 medium jars) so you can reduce if necessary. How hot are they? About 3 Coronas hot.
Recipe 2 – Joe’s Jerk Chicken Wings in the Thermomix (from The 4 Blades)
Traditionally Jerk chicken is a very hot Jamaican spice rub. While these are deliciously spicy, they aren’t as hot as the Hot Thermomix Chicken Wings above.
Recipe 3 – Dry Rub Thermomix Chicken Wings (from The 4 Blades)
*note: the picture above is a mixture of the Jerk Chicken Wings and the Dry Rub Thermomix Chicken Wings
This recipe utilised our favourite technique of marinading the flavour… we put the spices into a ziplock back with the chicken and shook it around until the chicken was well covered, then allowed to sit in the fridge until ready.
Here are some cool tips from this podcast…
– Cut the chicken wings at their joints to make them easier to serve as finger food.
– You can sit the chicken wings in buttermilk or salted water for an hour or so before cooking to end up with a deliciously juicy chicken wing. Dry the chicken wing, then start the marinade.
– Putting the marinade / spices into a ziplock bag and then putting the chicken inside the bag to coat thoroughly works really well, and you can leave it marinading in the fridge until required.
Here’s the comedy video about spices that Bec and Joe just didn’t understand… because we use our spices! *LANGUAGE WARNING – PLEASE DO NOT PLAY WITH CHILDREN PRESENT*
