Grilled Five-Spice Chicken Wings

Grilled Five-Spice Chicken WingsThe following chicken wings recipe is a quick and easy preparation one can make any time of the day. We've used Chinese five spice powder though you're free to use the local variant of the same. If a grill is not available, pan-fry these wings on a medium flame. Though chicken breast can also be used with the same seasoning, I'll strongly recommend sticking with the wings to get the best possible authentic flavor. It can be served both as a starter and as a main course entry. One can also add cayenne pepper to add a bit more fire in the flavor. If you're going to char-grill them, nothing can be better than that. You can serve these wings with your preferred dip or sauce. Let's quickly make these hot chicken wings.
