Let’s have some fun in the kitchen with poppy seeds. They provide great colour and an awesome little poppy bite. This recipe is a great one for parties! Young and old. The way we prepare the wing exposes the wing bone which is very handy for holding on too.

The red slaw and spicy sauce are just a bonus!
