Mom’s Braaied Chicken Wings Recipe

One of my favourite braai foods that my mom makes is Braaied Chicken Wings. She makes her own chicken marinade for the braai, and it’s delicious.

I have seen my mom make this recipe a hundred times but couldn’t remember exactly how she makes her chicken marinade that good… So this time when I was there with her, I asked her what the secret was.

Turns out, the ingredients are very simple, the secret perhaps, is just that it is made with love. I had to write this down in order to give it a try myself.

(For those of you who are unsure what “braai” means, it’s our South African way of saying barbecue!)


  • 3 tbsp Tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp Chutney
  • 1 tbsp Soya sauce
  • 1 tsp Chopped garlic
  • A bit of Salt and pepper
  • A bit of Cumin and coriander
  • 250g Chicken wings


  • Add all the ingredients into a cup and mix them together
  • Grab your basting brush
  • Add the chicken to the braai grill
  • Turn the chicken every couple of minutes, basting the chicken with the marinade as you turn the chicken.
  • The chicken wings will take about 25 minutes on a hot braai.
