Wuxi Chicken Wings (Ginger Wine Soy Sauce Chicken Wings) 無錫鸡翅


Wuxi (無錫) style of cooking although quite similar to Sweet and Sour style which taste sweet with a hint of saltiness. Sweet & Sour style is adding tomato ketchup whereas Wuxi style is adding Shao Hsing Hua Tiao Chiew wine which made the cooked meat has very nice wine aroma.

This Wuxi style is on slightly sweet side, i feel not so suitable to eat with rice, but perfectly to enjoy over with wine or beer..
