This is a really easy-to-make crowd pleaser! These tender chicken wings really hit the spot, and served with creamy broccoli they make for a great weeknight dinner.

Ingredients

Baked chicken wings

  • ½ orange juice, and zest
  • 60 ml of olive oil
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1.5 kg of chicken wings

Creamy broccoli

  • 650 g fresh broccoli florets
  • 225 ml double cream
  • 60 ml chopped fresh dill
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Mix juice and zest from the orange with oil and spices in a small bowl. Place the chicken wings in a plastic bag and pour in the marinade.
  3. Give the bag a good shake to cover the wings thoroughly. Put aside to marinate for at least 5 minutes but preferably more.
  4. Place the wings in one layer in a greased baking dish or on a broiler rack, for extra crispiness.
  5. Bake on middle rack in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the wings are golden brown and thoroughly cooked.
  6. In the meantime, divide the broccoli into small florets and parboil in salted water for a couple of minutes. They're only supposed to soften a bit but not lose their shape or color.
  7. Strain the broccoli and let some of the steam evaporate before adding the remaining ingredients. Serve the broccoli with the baked wings.

Notes

Tip! You can substitute the broccoli for small florets of cauliflower or Brussels sprouts. If you have an outdoor grill going you can use that for cooking the wings as well.
