{Sticky Chicken Wings 'n' Slaw}

In the past I've had a somewhat haphazard approach to chicken wings, a bit of honey, a bit of soy, maybe some garlic anyway they have always been good but these are incredible, I know its a big call but they are just what you imagine a sticky chicken wing should taste like, they are from Belinda Jeffreys book again '100 Favourite Recipes' (love her!).

I am looking forward to our next picnic so I can whip up another batch and the coleslaw although I deviated slightly from her recipe is the bomb, beware however they are super sticky, you are going to need more than paper towels to handle these little suckers.

...the wings
12 large wings (boomerang wings)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup red wine
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp grated fresh ginger

..the slaw
3/4 cup good mayonnaise
1 tbsp hot water
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cabbage thinly sliced
1 red capsicum thinly sliced
1 shallot thinly sliced
1 carrot grated

Preheat the oven to 200. Sit the wings in a single layer in a baking dish. Combine the soy, wine, sugar and ginger in a small saucepan and over medium heat stir till the sugar has dissolved, then pour the mixture evenly over the wings. Pop them into the oven for 30 minutes then take them out and turn them all over, pop back in the oven for another 20 - 30 minutes till they are a deep golden brown colour and glossy. Transfer them to a plate covered with a piece of baking paper.

To make the slaw whisk together the mayo, water, sesame oil and s+p then add in the veges and mix till all nicely coated.
