No matter how old are you, am sure you will love this braised sweet soy chicken wings! Unlike the usual braised wings I've done before, this Swiss Wings recipe does not require any spices like cinnamon, star anise or tangerine peel to enhance the taste. Just a couple slices of ginger and spring onion plus good quality soy sauce and lots of rock sugar will do :D Sounds simple enough right? It is fast and simple to prepare and also super yummylicious as they were all gone within minutes when the dish reached the dining table ^0^.
