Method

  1. Put the chicken wings in a large non-metallic bowl along with the sugar, chilli sauce, celery salt, lime zest and juice. Mix thoroughly to coat the wings, then cover and set aside to marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 24. (Transfer to the fridge if marinating for 2 hours or more.)
  2. When ready to cook, light the barbecue or heat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C fan/gas 6. Shake any excess marinade off the wings (discard any leftover marinade), then barbecue for 20-25 minutes, just to the side of the hottest part of the grill, turning occasionally, until sticky and cooked through. (Alternatively, if cooking in the oven, first heat a griddle pan on the hob until hot, then cook the wings, turning, for 5-6 minutes until charred all over. Transfer the wings to a large baking tray double-lined with foil, then finish in the oven for 30-40 minutes until cooked through.)
  3. Serve immediately with lime wedges and accompaniments.
