How to cook chicken wings sous vide

Chicken wings are a cheap cut but are full of flavour and are a great finger food for a family gathering or party. Chicken wings benefit from being cooked sous vide as the low temperature and long cooking time gives a tender, moist result.

Ingredients

1
Preheat the water bath to 75°C
2
Using a sharp, heavy knife, cut off the wing tips and discard
3
Season the remaining wings with salt and add to a vacuum bag with the oil and seal
4
Cook for 7 hours
5
The chicken wings can now be pan fried to crisp up the skin

Variations

Add crushed chillies or chopped herbs to the salt to introduce flavours to the bag.

The chicken wings can be deep-fried for an all over crispy skin and then tossed in barbecue sauce for an American twist or chilli sauce for a bit of a kick.
