Wednesday recipe: Honeyed sesame chicken wings

This is a recipe that happened by accident....a wonderful accident they way the best meals originate.  When I want to make really good soup  I often buy chicken wings to make a tasty stock.  I have a two part pasta pot, into the base goes onions, leeks, celery, carrots and any herbs I have.  The second part of the pot goes in, the strainer part and I put the wings into this. Cover with water, bring to boil and simmer.  I leave this to bubble for about 20 minutes.  The smell is wonderful and this gives me a wonderful stock to make soup.  I normally let whoever was in the house take the wings as they were or pick off the chicken for soup.  Inspiration hit one day and I came up with this.

Pack of chicken wings, about 12, poached as above
2 tblsp Sesame oil
2 tblsp Soy sauce
2 tblsp Honey
1 tblsp Sesame seeds

Line an oven tray with baking parchment or greaseproof paper and spread out wings on it.
Sprinkle with sesame oil and soy sauce and toss.
Drizzle some honey over and stir a little.
Sprinkle over sesame seeds.
Roast in oven at 180 degrees celsious for  about 10 mins or until beginning to brown.
Let cool just a little and eat with fingers.
