For the hot sticky marinade: (serves 4)

• 1/4 cup tomato sauce

• 3/4 cup smoky BBQ sauce

• 15-30ml Sriracha sauce (or hot chilli sauce)

• 15ml Worcestershire sauce

• 30ml dark brown sugar

• 5ml smoked paprika

• 2.5ml (1/2 teaspoon) salt

• About 16 chicken wings, for covering in the marinade


• 100g blue cheese, crumbled

• 1 cup thick sour cream or crème fraiche

• 1/4 cup mayonnaise

• 15-30ml milk

• 10ml lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar)

• Salt and pepper to taste


To make the sticky marinade: in a medium size mixing bowl, add all the ingredients for the marinade (except the chicken) and mix together. Pour over the chicken wings in a sealable container and marinate for 30 to 60 minutes (or longer – overnight).

Preheat the oven to 200?C. Line a roasting tray with foil, then arrange the marinated wings in a single layer. Roast for 30 minutes, then remove from the oven and use a pastry brush to brush with more marinade. Return to the oven, and keep on brushing every 10 minutes until the wings are very tender and the edges are dark, glossy and sticky. Remove from the oven and serve hot or at room temperature.

Make the dip while the chicken is roasting.

Mix all the ingredients in a food processor and until smooth and thick (thin it with a little milk if its too thick). Keep any leftovers refrigerated in a covered glass jar.

Serve with Spier Signature Chenin Blanc.
