Didn't Feel Like Cooking, Cheat Chicken Wings, Orange & Date Yoghurt Scones

I haven't been well this weekend and cut back a lot of items on the agenda - actually the whole family is not well.
Cold winter maybe? Everyone's coughing and Luke didn't even make to his swimming lessons.
So for dinner, I just came up with this really simple dish that even the kids will enjoy... and because of the children, I didn't spice it up...
Chicken wings, the drumlettes and the winglettes... marinated in light soy, maltose, 5 spice and ginger over night. crumbed with bread crumbs, spray on canola oil spray - lots, and in 190C oven for 25 minutes, followed by 220C for 10 minutes and it's a cheat way of doing crumbed chicken wings but not deep fried and minium work! Serve with baked spuds and sliced cucumbers, a very lay back dinner.
To spice up, just add white pepper, dry chilly flakes, cumin and coriander powder in the bread crumb mix - for a more adult fix.
And another lazy creation - I have to use up all the Greek Yoghurt in the fridge... another batch of scones - well, I did it earlier in the week...
400g Greek Yoghurt
60ml Olive oil.
75G sugar
1 tsp all spice
1 egg
4 cup SR flour
1/4 tsp bi-carb soda....
Oh.. last but not least, 2/3 cup chopped dates.
My scone doughs are always bit wet, but they rise well, and quick and easy to make. 190C oven 20-25 min.
