Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Poach the chicken wings in the chicken stock for 7–10 minutes, or until cooked. Once the chicken wings are ready, place them on a plate to cool slightly.

2. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Place the red peppers, onion and garlic on a roasting tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season, then roast for 30 minutes, or until soft.

3. Place in a blender and blend until smooth, then add the remaining sauce ingredients and check the seasoning. Toss the chicken wings in the sauce, then roast for 30 minutes, tossing often, until golden brown.

4. Serve the chicken wings with the sauce, topped with extra chives.
