Hickory Glazed Chicken Wings with French Bean & Pine Nut Salad

Featuring Newman’s Own® French Dressing & Sticky Honey BBQ Sauce

When asparagus is in season, the French beans can be replaced with 8 asparagus spears. Cook these until just tender in boiling water, or brush lightly with olive oil and grill or barbecue for 3-5 minutes.

Preparation time: 20 minutes (plus marinating)

Serves: 4

Per serving: 548kcals, 36.6g fat, 5.2g saturated fat




16 chicken wings, wing tips removed
1 bottle of Newman’s Own Sticky Hickory BBQ Sauce

5 oz (150 g) French beans, cut into 5cm (2in) lengths
1 small red onion, peeled very finely sliced or diced
2 courgettes, trimmed and cut into thin slices lengthways
Olive oil for brushing
4tbsp Newman’s Own French Dressing
2 oz (50 g) rocket, baby spinach or other salad leaves
3oz (75 g) pine nuts, lightly toasted


1. Place the chicken wings in a large bowl and pour over the Hickory Sauce. Mix well until the wings are evenly coated, cover with cling film and leave in the fridge to marinade for several hours or overnight.

2. Lift the chicken from the marinade and grill or barbecue over medium heat for 7-8 minutes on each side until cooked through and lightly charred, brushing or basting with any marinade left in the bowl.

3. To make the salad, blanch the beans in a pan of boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water. Place in a bowl with the red onion. Brush the courgette slices lightly with olive oil and grill or barbecue for 2-3 minutes or until just tender. Add to the bowl and pour over half the French Dressing.

4. Arrange the rocket, baby spinach or salad leaves on a serving platter or in a salad bowl and top with the beans, red onion and courgette slices. Drizzle with the remaining French Dressing, scatter over the pine nuts and serve with the chicken wings.

Tip: It’s best to snip off the tips of the chicken wings with kitchen scissors before cooking as the tips have no meat on them and will burn quickly on a barbecue or when grilled.
