Sticky BBQ Wings

At the heart of the Great British Chicken message is a passion for the importance of buying British chicken as it assures the consumer of a certain standard whilst supporting UK produce. Its remit is to educate British consumers about the benefits of buying British chicken and how to identify it as such by looking for the Red Tractor and Union Jack on packs oc chicken or by asking their butcher. Great British Chicken wants people to be able to make an informed choice about the chicken they buy.

Chicken is the UK's favourite meat - it accounts for 43% of all the meat we eat in this country. This should come as no surprise: not only is chicken tasty, versatile and easy to prepare but it is also higher in protein and lower in fat than red meat, making it a nutritious, healthy choice that will tempt the whole family's tastebuds.

Sally Gunnell and familySporting legend Sally Gunnell, who still holds the 400m hurdles world record, is a big fan of British chicken.

“As an athlete, it was essential to eat lots of fresh, good quality, nutritious foods and chicken was one of my staple ingredients. Not only is it lower in fat than red meat, it’s also higher in protein – which gives you energy.

“I’m not competing anymore – apart for fun – but I’ve maintained these healthy eating habits throughout my life and try to feed my husband and three young sons a balanced, nourishing diet.”

As a parent, and the daughter of a poultry farmer, Sally is passionate about knowing where her meat comes from, and supports local producers wherever possible.

“We eat chicken at least three times a week, and only British will do. I ask my butcher, or if I'm in the supermarket I always look for the Red Tractor and Union Jack. That way I know the chicken was produced to high standards and can be traced back to the British farm it cam from."

Ingredients for Sticky BBQ Wings

6 British chicken wings
Extra-virgin olive oil

5 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp Tabasco sauce
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp paprika

How to make Sticky BBQ Wings

  • Sticky BBQ WingsWhisk together all the ingredients, except the chicken and olive oil, to form the marinade.
  • Place the chicken wings in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag so the wings are evenly coated. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, turning occasionally. This can also be done in a large bowl, but can take more room in the fridge.
  • Remove the wings from the bag and discard the marinade. Lightly brush or spray the wings with olive oil and thread onto two parallel skewers.
  • Cook without moving, over a medium heat for 6 - 8 minutes until well marked. Continue cooking over a medium heat for approximately 10 - 12 minutes, until the meat is no longer pink at the bone. Serve warm.

Top tip:

When BBQing, always make sure the chicken is cooked thoroughly before eating. To check this, pierce the plumpest part of the flesh and make sure the juices run clear. If not, cook further.

Serves 6 - 8
