My top tip is to make sure you plan meals when the children are back at school. It can be a stressful time with the school run, after-school clubs, play dates and all the rest.

But if you can set aside an hour on a Sunday to plan for the week ahead, it will save you so much time.

Sticky-glaze chicken wings (Serves 4)

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 45-50 minutes


  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 4 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp frozen garlic
  • 900g pack chicken wings
  • Sesame seeds (optional)

METHOD: In a large bowl combine the soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce, ketchup and garlic, then pour the mixture into a small freezer bag.

Add the chicken wings to a large freezer bag and place the smaller bag of sauce inside this.

Ready to Freeze: Place the bag flat in the freezer.

Ready to cook: Remove the wings from the freezer the night before you want to eat and let them defrost fully in the fridge.

Once defrosted, take out your wings and pat them dry with kitchen towel to remove as much moisture as possible.

Once dry, sprinkle over 1 tsp of salt and place them on a baking tray in the oven for 25 minutes at 160C/140C fan/gas 3.

After 25 minutes, remove from the oven and pour over the sauce, making sure it is all well coated.

Return to the oven, raise the temperature to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and bake the chicken for a further 20 minutes.

Once cooked, coat with sesame seeds if you like and serve with oven chips for a brilliant fakeaway.
