  1. Separate the chicken wings: use a sharp knife to slice between the joint to make 2 ‘winglets’. The knife should go easily between the bones. Pat dry with kitchen paper, then mix with 3 tbsp harissa paste and 1 tbsp olive oil in a bowl.

  2. Preheat the barbecue to high, then cook the wings for 20-25 mins, turning frequently, until the skin is crisp and the chicken is cooked through.

  3. Meanwhile, swirl 1 tsp harissa paste through the houmous and drizzle with ½ tsp olive oil. Serve the wings hot with the houmous alongside.
