    For the wings

    20 Chicken Wings

    150ml Maple Syrup

    1 tsp Dried Chilli Flakes

    250ml Irish Whiskey

    600ml Water

    125g Brown Sugar

    Salt and Pepper

    For the Blue Cheese Mayo

    150ml Mayonnaise

    60g Blue Cheese

    ½ head of Celery, peeled, washed and cut into batons


    Pre-heat the oven to 160°C/140°C Fan/Gas Mark 3.

    In a bowl mix together the maple syrup, water and whiskey.

    Add the chicken wings to a large, deep oven-ready tray. Season with salt and pepper then add the sugar and mix well.

    Now mix in the chilli flakes and then add the whiskey mix to the tray coating the chicken wings.

    Add to the pre-heated oven and braise for 1 and a half hours or until the meat is falling from the bone.

    Remove from the oven, allow to cool a little and then remove the chicken wings from the tray and set aside. Strain the liquid into a saucepan. Put over a medium to high heat and reduce to a sticky sauce as quickly as possible (approx. 10 minutes).

    Meanwhile, mix the mayo with the blue cheese to make a blue cheese dip.

    When ready to serve, toss the wings in the sticky sauce and serve with the blue cheese dip and celery sticks.
