  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 lbs chicken wings without wing tip
  • 6 large garlic cloves (sliced)
  • 1 heaped tablespoon picked fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 4 large potatoes
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Separate the wing into two at the joint.
  • Heat oil and butter in a large frying pan that has a lid.
  • Add chicken and fry on medium until the chicken becomes golden brown.
  • Sprinkle garlic and fresh rosemary over chicken. Stir and allow to fry for a couple of minutes.
  • Add wine. Bring to boil and simmer for a few minutes.
  • Season well with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Add one cup of water. Cover with the lid, turn down the heat. Simmer gently for 45 minutes.
  • In the meantime, peel potatoes and cut into large chunks.
  • After 45 minutes add potatoes pressing them into the sauce.
  • Replace the lid. Continue to simmer for 20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through.
  • Remove the lid. Stir gently. If too liquidy, simmer for 10 minutes to reduce.
  • Serve with plenty of crusty bread for mopping up the sauce.


  • To make it even easier look for chicken wings without the tips that have already be cut at the joint. At my local supermarket they are called "Chicken Nibbles".
  • Substitute chicken stock for water as suggested by one of my readers - be sure to check before salting if you use a salty chicken stock.
  • Waxy potatoes are best as they hold their shape¬†
  • Be sure to taste and salt well
