I had a oops moment in that I made up the marinade and instead of putting the thigh cutlets in I put in the wing drummetes - my apologies put it down to sleep deprivation. The end result was delicious, I reduced the marinade but instead of using it as I basting sauce I poured it over the wing drummetes when serving and baked the wings in a tray at 175C for 50 minutes and result was tender full of flavour chicken. Thank you Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle for a lovely dinner.
