Serving Many
I have found this little combination a great meal to serve when there are lots of children about. Out of the three items they are bound to like one of them and we serve it banquet style so the children can serve themselves. It also easy to cook and doesn’t require the cook to be stuck in the kitchen for the whole time. The potatoes take approx two hours to cook and the chicken wings an hour. This recipe would easily serve 8 children.

But I can testify that this meal is also very popular with adults. I decided at the last minute to have my husbands family over for his birthday in June (photo from this event) and every one ate heartily and there was not much left over!

Chicken Wings, Baked Potatoes and Steamed Corn

Ingredients:

  • 8 large potatoes
  • 6 large corn
  • 200 grams cheese grated
  • 75 grams butter
  • 150 mls sour cream
  • 1.5 kg chicken wings (I buy marinated ones, honey and soy is the favourite with the kids)
  • 8 bread rolls

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Prick potatoes with a skewer or sharp knife (right through) several times and then place the potatoes directly onto the wire racks in the oven.
  3. Almost an hour after this, place chicken wings onto tray and place them in the oven. I like to line the tray with baking paper to prevent them from sticking.
  4. Fill the steamer with water and bring it to the boil.
  5. 30 minutes before the chicken wings will be ready, cut corn in half and put it on to cook. The corn usually only takes about 20 minutes but this allows time for cooling, so that little hands and mouths don’t get burned.
  6. Turn the chicken wings also after 30 minutes.
  7. Place chicken wings on platters, corn and potatoes onto serving dishes with butter, cheese sour cream and any other toppings you like.
  8. Serve with buttered dinner rolls and enjoy!

    We sometimes cheat and start cooking our baked potatoes in the microwave. I make sure the skin has been pierced in a couple of spots then microwave in 15 minute intervals depending on size. When the outside is softened, I pop them in the oven straight onto a rack to crisp up the skin. Good for when you have less time to get dinner ready. You will have to fill me in on your chicken noodle soup recipie….what an adventurous week :-) !!!
