Chicken wing nibbles, also sold as drumettes, are chicken wings that have been cut into smaller pieces at the joints; if you can’t find them you can use chicken wings (cooking time will increase to about 35 minutes) or you can buy chicken wings and cut them into nibbles yourself, discarding the tips. The chicken and rice is yummy hot or cold, so leftovers would make a great lunch or packed picnic. The wings are sticky, so make sure you have a good supply of paper napkins for sticky fingers.
