Khmer Krom baked chicken wings with sweet and spicy sauce is another delicious variation on some of the Cambodian recipes I received from students....NEW note-- as for being authentic or "really" Cambodian, all I can tell you is that I've had similar chicken at three different students' homes and this was from one student's grandmother. It's pretty good regardless!

Im not fan of this recipe, but it is really popular in my community in Kampuchea Krom, Mekong delta.<br/><br/>This is our special dish, Khmer Krom means Cambodian living in Mekong delta, where was belong to Cambodia ancient kingdom in the past, in 17th century Vietnamese invased and now it is called Nam Bo or just Mekong delta, we just call Kampuchea Krom and its people is Khmer Krom, Krom mean low :D<br/><br/>There are so much delicious dishes of our Khmer, but im sorry my English is not good to write a destruction and post in here :((
Wow - such a good and easy recipe! It calls for all the salty ingredients you can think of, but hey...it's what makes food taste good. I'm Cambodian and this recipe doesn't taste "Cambodian" to me. But maybe it was recently invented by a Cambodian person (smile).
Love the flavor of these wings, they were enjoyed by all.
