  1. CAN I MAKE THIS IN THE OVEN: You certainly can make them in the oven. Using the same technique put the wings in a Lined baking tray, spray with some cooking spray. Bake for 30 mins flipping it on both sides to ensure it does not burn.
  2. DO YOU HAVE TO MARINADE YOUR CHICKEN WINGS: I will say yes because this makes it more flavourful. If you are pressed for time you can allow it marinade for 10 mins or thereabout.
