Tapas for 4

  • 12 chicken wings, tips removed and cut in half at the joint
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Bunch fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Large sprig fresh thyme
  • Half teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt
  • Glass dry white wine
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 100ml (3.5 fl oz) olive oil

Peel and crush the garlic, finely chop the parsley and thyme.

Mix all of the ingredients except the chicken in a bowl and leave to infuse for half an hour or so.

Place the prepared chicken wings in a resealable freezer bag and add the other ingredients. Close the bag and knead well or shake the bag up to ensure a good covering. Leave in the fridge to marinate for two hours or so, shaking the bag from time to time.

Place the wings onto a greased oven tray, pouring over any left over marinade and cook in a hot oven for 20 to 30 minutes turning halfway until golden brown and beginning to crisp.
