Five Spice Chicken Wings recipe

Finger licking good Baked Five Spice Chicken Wings are succulent, juicy and healthy.

Being Asian, brought up with Asian cultures... when friends invited you for dinner at their house, you just can't turn up empty handed, can you?

Five Spice Chicken Wings

Even though you had been told "I've got all covered, you just come over :D "... sound familiar?
It is just NOT happening!!! turning up empty handed, I know that the first person to give me a frown would be my hubby dearest...and if my parents were here... they would frown too :(
It is not rude to go empty handed, but 'Asian social convention' dictate that (hahaha...obviously no such convention!!!) one must bring something... anything... a plate to share.

This was one of my 'Plate to share'...
I made and brought these juicy succulent wings to our good friend's dinner recently...
Making it 'healthier'... I baked these wings instead of deep fry. 

You can deep fry them too if you wish like these great finger food : Nam yee Fried wings, Thai lemongrass wings and Inche Cabin.
