Phoebe’s chicken wings with potato wedges

'This is something I cook often, especially for Saturday lunch. I got
the idea from a chicken restaurant
we went to in Portugal while on holiday. It’s very tasty and simple to make' - Junior Masterchef finalist (2014) Phoebe.

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 1 hours
  • Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Serves: 4


4 potatoes (about 200g each)

1 tbsp sunflower oil

1kg chicken wings


4 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tsp sweet smoked paprika

1⁄2-1 tsp cayenne pepper (depending 
on how hot you like it)

2 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp light brown soft sugar

1 tbsp vegetable oil 


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 ̊C, gas mark 6. Wash the potatoes, leaving the skins on, then cut lengthways into thick wedges. Put the wedges on a large baking tray, season and toss with the oil. Roast for 
20 minutes, until starting to soften.
  2. Meanwhile, mix all the rub ingredients together with 1 tbsp water until you have a paste. Pat the chicken wings dry with kitchen paper, then mix with the paste
in a bowl until evenly coated. Season, then put on the tray with the wedges. Roast for another 35 minutes, until golden.
