Ingredients for Boneless Chicken Wings

  • 2 chicken breasts cut into 3 inch chunks (8cm)
  • 1 cup of plain flour (use cornflour if you like a lighter batter)
  • 1 beaten egg
  • BBQ seasonings of choice – we like Meat Church Holy Gospel Rub (see recipe notes to make your own)

  • Optional – add a pinch of turmeric to the flour for a little extra flavour and colour
