Spicy chicken wings

These chicken bites are one of my simple go-to meals. They take no time to get in the oven and go well with salad, mash, roasted vegetables and anything! For best results use free range, organic chicken – the health of the chicken directly affects the health of your body. Adding plenty of butter at the end helps form a rich, spicy sauce that you can use later on other vegetables. For those who are worried about butter, STOP! Butter is full of fat-soluble vitamins and healthy short chain fats, not to mention its incredible flavour.

minutes cooking




  • 4 chicken pieces (wings and legs are best because they are the fattiest)
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbs salted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C fan forced.
  2. Combine the spices in a bowl and then use to coat the chicken.
  3. Place the coated chicken on a tray and bake for 35 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink.
  4. Remove the chicken from the oven and divide the butter over each piece. Put the chicken back in the oven for a further 5 minutes.
  5. Remove and serve the chicken. The delicious buttery sauce will have spread around the tray a little so be sure to save every last bit. Drizzle some over the chicken and keep the rest to serve with things like sautéed kale at a later time.
