I love fusion cuisines. This type of cuisine can hardly be boring because it incorporates elements from different parts of the world. I tried baking chicken wings using western cooking techniques and then coating them with Chinese sweet and sour sauce.
They turned out so delicious that I just wanted to lick my fingers. The skin of chicken wings was baked to perfectly crispy, the taste of the sauce was just well balanced. Who can resist these crispy chicken wings coated with flavorful sweet and sour sauce? Not me, that’s for sure.
