12 chicken wings, cut apart at the joint and wing tips discarded
1 tsp salt
2 tablespoons hot sauce
2 cups flour
1 cup breadcrumbs
Cooking oil, for deep frying
Combine all the spice ingredients together in a small bowl. Place the wings in a baking tray and rub all over wings sprinkle. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Whisk together the eggs and hot sauce in a bowl.
Place flour, breadcrumbs and salt in a bowl & stir to combine.
Pour oil in pot and heat.
Dip the wings in the egg mixture and then coat in flour mixture.
Fry half the wings for 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
Repeat with remaining wings. Enjoy!
Quick and easy microwave milk tart
397g tin condensed milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
Using the condensed milk tin as a measure, measure 3 full tins of milk
1 tbsp vanilla essence
4 tbsp cornflour, diluted in a little of the milk from above
1 packet Tennis biscuits, crushed
½ cup butter, melted
In a bowl, mix the biscuit crumbs with the butter and set aside.
In a separate (microwavable) bowl, place the condensed milk, milk, beaten egg, and corn flour.
Whisk all the ingredients together.
Microwave the mixture for 4 minutes, remove the bowl from the microwave and whisk vigorously.
Return the bowl to the microwave and whisk every 2 minutes until the mixture thickens.
This should take about 12-15 minutes.
Now add the vanilla essence to the mixture and stir to incorporate.
Pour the mixture over the biscuit base, cool and refrigerate for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight.
Before serving, dust the cinnamon over the milk tart. Slice and serve.
