- In a container that has a lid, season the chicken wings with salt, the garlic powder, piri-piri sauce, cayenne pepper, black pepper, olive oil and 1/4 lemon juice.
- Put the lid on the container and shake well, so the seasoning is well spread.
- Let it marinate for 1 hour.
- Meanwhile to make the sauce, in a small pan, dissolve the cornstarch with the vinegar, add the ketchup, the piri-piri sauce, the honey and the butter.
- Place it on the heat and let the butter melt.
- When it turns into a homogeneous sauce, remove it from the heat.
- In a baking tray previously brushed with olive oil, place the chicken wings with the skin facing downwards, so that they don't stick together.

- After 10 minutes, remove the tray with the wings and brush them with the sauce.
- Turn them skin up and brush them again.
- Return them to the oven for another 10 minutes.
- When the chicken wings are golden brown and caramelized, remove them from the oven.
- If you want the chicken wings to have the most intense flavor, brush them again with the sauce or serve the sauce seperately.
