I hope that you enjoyed my series on Rooibos tea. If you haven’t seen it yet, just type in ‘Rooibos’ on the search bar, and it will take you directly to my posts.
Once you become accustomed to the unique flavour of Rooibos, you may not want to go back to plain old teabags. Aside from tasting good, Rooibos also has many health benefits, which are not found in the average teabags. They are also naturally caffeine free!
I must admit, that I have made this particular recipe twice this month, and I’ll probably make it again before the month is over. The first time that I made it, I didn’t write down the recipe – yes, sometimes it goes like that. I just throw a bit of this, and a bit of that together, and see what happens. If it works out well, then it will become a new recipe. If it doesn’t, but I think it could be better, then I will tweak. If it is really lousy, I won’t even bother to mention it!
This dish is easy, doesn’t take too long to cook, and could also be made on the stovetop, if you do not have an oven. You could also use a microwave oven, but the result wouldn’t be the same.
You only need four ingredients. How simple is that?! Of course, you can also play around with the ingredients. You could add your favourite herbs and spices.
Rooibos Marinated Chicken Wings (gluten free, egg free, nut free, oat free, soy free, corn free)
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 50 minutes
- chicken wings (I used 7 pieces)
- 2 Tablespoons of chutney (your favourite)
- 1/2 cup of ready made Rooibos tea
- Preheat an oven to 180C/355F
- Rinse the chicken wings under running water
- Pat dry and place into an ovenproof dish
- Salt the chicken
- In a separate bowl, mix the chutney and Rooibos tea
- Pour over the wings, cover with tin foil, and leave to stand for about 15 minutes. The longer you leave it, the more tender the meat will be, so if you have time, leave it for up to an hour
- Bake in a preheated oven, at 180C/355F for 45 minutes
- Remove from oven, and carefully remove the tin foil
- Return to the oven to brown (about another 15 minutes, depending on how crispy you like the wings)
Serve with vegetables, rice or potatoes
