The ingredients

800g Chicken wings

Freesweet Baking Jar

The method


  1. 1. To make the brittle:
  2. In a bowl mix the freesweet, salt, sesame seeds, cashew nuts, coconut flakes and ginger.
  3. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper or silicone mat and roast for 13-15 minutes on 180°C.
  4. Once roasted, refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. 2. Preheat the oven to 200⁰C
  6. Or have the braai ready at medium heat. (The coals are red, but there are no more flames).
  7. 3. Whisk together all the hoisin sauce ingredients and set aside. Keep ½ cup of sauce separate to use later.
  8. Add the chicken wings to the hoisin sauce in a bowl and marinate for a minimum of 1 hour. You can also marinate these overnight in order for the meat to absorb the flavor of the sauce.
  9. Roast for 25 minutes until the wings are sticky and slightly charred.
  10. This can also be done on medium heat coals in a braai or on an open fire.
  11. 4. Serve the chicken wings with the brittle crumble, fresh coriander, spring onions and drizzle with the sauce that you set aside earlier.
