Ingredients

Approximately 10 chicken wings, each cut into 2 pieces

2 tablespoons sugar

Juice of 1 lemon

Coarse sea salt, to taste

1 teaspoon of ground cumin

Several big pinches of ground cinnamon

Pinch of ground allspice

3 to 4 tablespoons of orange juice

1 or 2 teaspoons grated orange zest

1 can of La Morena Chipotle Sauce (200ml)

Preparation

Combine the chicken wings, sugar, lemon juice, salt, cumin, cinnamon, allspice, orange juice and zest, chipotle sauce, olive oil and pepper in a large bowl.  Marinate for 1 to 2 hours in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 190 degrees.  Bake the wings, turning occasionally, for about 1 hour, or until they are golden and browned in spots, the marinade has turned into a sticky mixture and the oil has separated.  If they aren’t browned and nicely crispy, either increase the oven temperature or place the wings under the broiler (fan bake).  Pour off and discard the oil before serving.

Serve hot or at room temperature with salsa of your choice, or guacamole
