  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together in a dish. Add the wings or drumsticks and toss well to coat thoroughly. Set aside for 10 minutes (or longer if you have time), turning now and then in the marinade. Preheat the grill (or barbecue) to medium-high.
  2. Put the chicken pieces into a roasting tray and place the tray under the grill (or on the barbecue) for 15 minutes. Turn the chicken over halfway through cooking and baste occasionally in any leftover marinade. The chicken should be piping hot, sticky and glazed.
