  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Mix all the ingredients for the pad Thai sauce in a large bowl. Separate the chicken wings: use a sharp knife or a pair of kitchen scissors to slice between the joint to make 2 ‘winglets’. Toss to coat in the marinade, then set aside at room temperature for 30 mins or in the fridge for up to 24 hrs.
  2. Place on a large baking tray and roast for 25-30 mins until cooked through. Transfer to a platter and serve scattered with the peanuts and spring onions with the lime wedges for squeezing over.
