Middle Eastern Chicken Wings

Middle Eastern Chicken Wings

 

Middle Eastern chicken wings are one of my all-time favorite dishes. They are delicious and so easy to make. I love how the skin gets crispy. I used to think chicken wings were unhealthy with all that animal fat, but now I just think they’re delicious.

These chicken wings make a great appetizer or main dish.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Start to finish: approx. 50 minutes

Ingredients

10 chicken wings (get your butcher to cut them in half if you like)

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. turmeric powder

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. ground curry

½ tsp. salt

Cayenne pepper to taste (optional, add to make it spicy)

 

Method

1. Pour the olive oil into a large bowl.

2. Add all the spices and mix to make a paste.

3. Don’t make it too thick, though. It’ll have to coat all the wings. Add olive oil if needed.

5. Spread the wings out on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil for easy clean-up.

6. Place in the oven on a high shelf and roast on high heat (heat coming from the top of the oven) for about 15 minutes on one side until crispy, then turn and do the other side for another 10 minutes. I like my wings really well done. Ok, I like them boderline burnt. Basically, roast them to the crispiness you prefer. I find that some wings are ready before the others, so I remove the ones that are done and leave the rest a bit longer.

    So how mant carbs are in the chicken wing recipe

    • Ruth Almon says:

      There must be some very small amount coming from the spices. Logic dictates that it’s basically it’s all fat and protein.
      I don’t have an exact answer because I don’t spend any time calculating how many carbs are in a dish, the number of calories, or exactly which vitamins are in dishes. I concentrate on eating the best quality food I can find and enjoying it. :)
