I came across this dish when it was Donald’s, my trainee at work, turn to cook the day’s staff meal. Donald is a mainland Chinese, from Shenzhen, who loves to man the kitchen and any main dish with chicken wings is his favorite recipe. He said it was the easiest to make. And true enough, as I was observing him prepare the meal, I was amazed at how easy it was, with not much ingredients used, but the result is just perfect, utterly divine. Well, at least for chicken wing lovers like me.
And so I decided to try it on the day my siblings arrived here in SG for a short visit. It was well received. And since then, it has been my signature dish.
