Guinness BBQ Wings with Appleslaw

The sweet and smoky flavour of this Guinness BBQ Sauce has hints of molasses, aniseed, orange and just a touch of hot chili. The spiciness of the sauce is offset by the cooling, crisp and creamy appleslaw.

    1. For the Guinness® BBQ Sauce, place all ingredients in a saucepan except the butter and the parsley. Bring to the boil. Simmer for 30-45 minutes, remove the bay leaves and then blend to a smooth sauce. Stir through the butter and parsley until the butter is melted. Adjust seasoning to taste.
    2. For the Appleslaw, mix together all the ingredients for the dressing and set aside in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Toss together all the ingredients for the Appleslaw together with the dressing and leave in the fridge for 10 minutes before serving.
    3. Toss the chicken wings in rice flour to coat and shake off any excess. Deep fry in 170C oil for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Drain well, season with salt and then transfer to a large bowl and toss with enough Guinness® BBQ Sauce to coat generously.
