Add a bit of spice to your life with these moreish chicken wings – they make for a great starter. Make sure you have plenty of napkins on hand to eat them with! 

Preheat oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Take the wings and bend them apart backwards so that you can easily cut through the knuckle with scissors or a knife.

In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, bay leaves, chilli, garlic, 1 tbsp honey, mustard and coriander seeds. Add the chicken wings and turn to coat thoroughly. Season to taste.

Arrange the wings on a roasting tray lined with nonstick baking paper and roast for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes or so. Remove from the oven then drizzle over the remaining 1 tbsp honey and squeeze over the lemon juice from the halves. Return to the oven and roast for another 10 minutes, until cooked through with no pink showing. Serve immediately.
