Recipe type: Meat
Cuisine: Portuguese
Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 – 4 bird’s eye chili (depending on your heat tolerance level - remove seeds for a milder version)
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) lemon juice (from 1 - 2 lemons)
  • 4 large garlic cloves - roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 10 pieces (250 g) chicken drumlets / wings
  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the chicken in a blender or mini food processor, and blend until smooth. Spread the marinade evenly all over the chicken drumlets and let them hang out in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 220°C/425°F degrees. Line a roasting pan/tray with aluminum foil for easy clean-up and place the chicken on top of an oven-proof rack in a single layer. Bake for 10 mins, turn over, baste with extra sauce and bake for another 15 mins, or until nicely browned.
