  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 60ml vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 limes, juiced
  • 720g chicken wings, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1/2 lime, zested
  • For the avocado dip
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
1) In a blender, puree until smooth the jalapeno pepper, garlic, vegetable oil, tomato puree, salt, honey and lime juice. Pour marinade over the chicken. Add the lime zest and toss to coat. Cover with clingfim and refrigerate overnight.

2) Preheat grill to medium heat.

3) Arrange chicken on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Broil chicken at least 10cm from the heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side; or until chicken is crispy on the outside and cooked through. Serve with avocado dip.

4) For the dip: pit and peel avocado. Place avocado in a medium bowl; mash. Fold in 3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves; lime juice, garlic and salt; and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
