On with 0 Comment
Chicken wings with spicy ginger plum sauceThis hot and spicy chicken preparation is a delicious starter you can prepare in a quick time before your guests knock at the door. Instead of using chicken wings, one can use breasts too. The sauce used in this recipe is quite sharp and delicious. If you find it too fiery, make the necessary changes in the ingredients list. This sauce is always prepared fresh because the refrigerated version tends to lose its original flavor. Before serving, you can garnish it with white sesame seeds. The same recipe can also be prepared with duck meat which is one of my favorites. So, let's get started and quickly make this hot and scrumptious chicken wings recipe flavored generously with spicy ginger and plum sauce.
