WHAT a recipe! I can honestly say that this is one my favourite recipes on here, definitely the best chicken wing recipe! I love wings in OK from our local chinese, but this version rivals it well. First of all the sauce, so tasty I could have it with almost anything. And the wings are lovely and tender and not too greasy.
I didn't know what you meant by "green capsicum"; chilli? bell? sweet? So I ignored it and just added some chilli flakes to the sauce to add a bit of flare.
Overall a fantastic recipe that I will be repeating over and over!
