  • 1 tsp salt

  • ½ tsp chili flakes (More if you like! The recipe is quite mild.)Potatoes
  • 4 medium potatoes, cut into small cubes
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 15 cracks fresh pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (to garnish potatoes)
  • Mixed sprouts to garnish dinner plates

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Set the oven to 375° and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place the chopped potatoes into a large bowl. Drizzle with a generous amount of olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic granules as noted above and toss until evenly coated. Pour the potatoes onto one of the baking sheets, pat them into a single layer and pop them into the oven. Set a timer for 15 minutes.

Step 2

Place the chicken wings into the same bowl that you used for the potatoes along with the figs, salt, pepper, five spice powder, chili flakes, sugar, and a generous drizzle of olive oil. Toss well until the chicken wings are evenly coated with olive oil and seasoning then pour the wings onto the other baking sheet and arrange them in a single layer, distributing the figs evenly between them. When the timer goes off, place the wings into the oven beside the potatoes and set the timer for a further 30 – 35 minutes, until the wings are golden brown and have reached an internal temperature of 165°.

Step 3

When everything is done in the oven, remove the pans, sprinkle fresh parsley over the potatoes and give a little stir to mix it in. Share the potatoes and wings over 4 plates then sit down and devour the delicious flavors mingling through the amazing dinner that you created!
