  • 1kg chicken wings (you can also use legs and thighs, or a combination)
  • 3.5 litres cold water
  • 220g salt
  • 250ml Lo & Slo Chilli Mop Sauce


  1. Dissolve the salt in the cold water to create a brine solution.
  2. Place the chicken pieces in the salt water and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  3. Drain the brine and place the chicken in a large pot. Cover with fresh water and bring to a boil. Boil for 20 minutes if using wings only, or 30 minutes for thighs and legs.
  4. Drain the chicken and pat dry with kitchen roll. For best results, leave the chicken uncovered on a baking tray in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight to achieve crispy skin.
  5. Preheat the oven to 220°C and place the chicken wings in an ovenproof dish. Coat the chicken with the Lo & Slo vinegar mop, ensuring all sides are coated.
  6. Place the dish in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, flipping the chicken pieces every 10 minutes and spooning the vinegar mop over them to re-coat. Finish the wings under the grill until they become sticky and caramelized.
  7. Serve the sweet and spicy sticky chicken wings with a pint of your favorite local microbrew. They make a perfect snack, starter, or party food.

Enjoy your delicious homemade wings!
