Woodfired Sticky Chicken with Vietnamese Dipping Sauce – Method

1. Marinate the chicken in the first 7 ingredients (after the chicken). Mix well, cover and leave overnight in the fridge.

2. Heat a grill – a Tuscan Grill or similar – in the oven and brush with some sunflower oil to stop the chicken sticking to the grill.

3. Add the chicken wings to the grill and cook slowly in the oven, turning them from time to time, until the internal temperature is around 68C.

4. Increase the fire and the temperature to get a good grilling flame and cook the chicken until the internal temperature is 75C or a little over and the wings are well browned.

5. Make the dipping sauce by mixing all the ingredients together – taste for a well balanced sauce and adjust as necessary.

6. Put the cooked chicken in a bowl and toss in the sesame seeds to coat them all, shaking them around in the bowl.

7. Serve the wings at once with the dipping sauce and plenty of paper napkins to wipe your fingers.

Woodfired Sticky Chicken with Vietnamese Dipping Sauce – Alternatives

Try skewers of cubed pork instead of the chicken wings.

Use different herbs in the dipping sauce.

Notch up the heat of the sauce or the marinade by using different chillies – remember not to rub your eyes or any other body part when you are working with them.
