Sour chicken wings, what?

Sweet and sour chicken wings are a perfect solution for those who want a dish with a bit of everything. A little sweet, a little salty, a little spicy and a little sour! What is missing? The recipe, of course! If these characteristics are still not enough to cook chicken wings, here are other valid reasons:

  • Wings are the cheapest and most versatile part of the chicken
  • The cut of white meat is tender and soft

In the kitchen, the recipes for cooking chicken - even more so the wings, are truly numerous, some intended for sad dishes and necessary for a very low calorie diet, others instead a little more caloric but, in terms of flavour, really amazing. Imagine: chicken marinated in oriental spices and white wine vinegar.
