About this recipe

Barbecue chicken wings are a must-have at every family barbecue. They’re delicious eaten with the famous hummus and smokey eggplant salad.

So let’s get the party started with the best chicken wings you’ve ever barbecued. Chicken wings are great for any occasion and make a perfect appetiser or even a whole meal. They’re even better when barbecued with all that extra smokey flavour and served with other delicious barbecue food.

I love the flavour and ease of cooking them on the barbecue. The marinade for these chicken wings is loaded with a balanced tangy Middle Eastern-style dressing. If a barbecue is not on hand, then you will also love the oven roasted garlic and lemon chicken wings.

There are two basic ways to season wings when barbecuing — with a wet marinade, which is a very popular way, or with a spicy dry rub.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon chilli paste/mince
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • salt to season
  • 1 lemon (approximately 3-4 tablespoons)

Notes from Rouba

  • There’s no need to rest the wings once cooked.
  • Marinating the chicken for 1-2 hours is ideal.

Method

Step 1.

Begin by making the marinade. Using a mortar and pestle, crush the garlic, add the chilli and mix. Slowly add the olive oil and bring to a paste. Set aside.

Step 2.

The first cut that you’ll make will be the joint between the wingtip and the wingette. Using a sharp knife, remove the pointed wingtip by cutting off from the joint. Then slice through the skin separating the drumette and the wingette but don’t cut all the way through. Using two hands pull apart to flatten (you will hear the bone crack) but keep intact.

Step 3.

Make two slits across the wingette and then butterfly, open the drumette from each side.

Step 4.

Place the chicken wings into a bowl and season with salt. Add the garlic and chilli paste to the chicken wings and toss to coat evenly massaging all over.

Add the dried oregano and lemon and mix well. Allow to marinate for at least an hour prior to cooking.

Step 5.

You will need to cook the wings on a very hot barbecue. So take advantage of the heat just after the flames have died down and the embers are hot.

This post is meant to be a recipe, but I can’t ignore what’s been happening 👉🏽👉🏽The last seven months have been incredibly challenging, watching thousands of innocent Palestinians being slaughtered in the name of self-defence 💔 It’s an excuse to ethnically cleanse the indigenous people of the land. But what I’ve seen in the last 24 hours has absolutely shattered me 😞

Families were told to move for their safety, only to be burnt alive. I forced myself to watch videos of beheaded babies—images that will never leave my mind. The destruction, the horrific scenes, and the screams are etched in our hearts and minds💔

And yet, our government responds with a mere, “It’s concerning.” Our tax money has contributed to the slaughter of these innocent people; our tax money has contributed to funding this genocide. 

I feel heartbroken and helpless. How can the world just watch? How can anyone say, “I’m staying out of this”?

I’m not ok. Are you?
With so many new followers here, today feels like the right time to reintroduce myself, as it also marks the 76th anniversary of the Nakba—a day of remembrance for the Palestinian people, including my family🇵🇸🌟 

I’m Rouba, 40+7 years young, and I’ve been happily married for 28 years🙏🏽 Those who follow my stories know my husband is quite the character, always keeping things lively 😅 We have two wonderful sons, and my mother-in-law is truly amazing—she often features in my stories ❤️

I’m a big foodie, with a special love for hummus fatteh, ofcourse the  Lebanese 🇱🇧 version 😉 it’s my absolute favourite! I believe Middle Eastern food is the yummiest in the world. 🙌🏼 And yes, I’m proudly pro-Palestine, married to a Palestinian. 

Seventy-five years ago, my husband’s grandfather and his family were evicted from their home. This history is a significant part of our lives 💔

Thanks for joining me here, where we celebrate rich flavours, vibrant stories, and the resilience of a remarkable culture.

Welcome to my journey! FREE PALESTINE 🇵🇸

I Say NO to international women’s day - I have learned so much in the past few months, and as I sit here reflecting, I realize that International Women’s Day has never been as inclusive as I once believed. How was I convinced otherwise? Where is the support for all women? Today, I see the humiliation of Palestinian women, their trauma, their screams for lost loved ones, their search for their babies under rubble, and their lack of basic necessities like food, water and  sanitary products. 

I can no longer participate in a day that acknowledges and hears only certain women while ignoring others. International Women’s Day was supposed to be for all women – this is what I was led to believe. Yet, the reality is starkly different. 

Today, I choose to say no to International Women’s Day unless it truly includes and represents all women.
