SALT AND PEPPER CHICKEN WINGS

Updated: Jul 24

“Salt and pepper chicken wings” are a chinese appetiser dish or can be served as a side dish”

We are suckers for a good Chinese, so it’s no surprise that hubby & I had a craving for this delicious, mouthwatering and cheeky side dish the other day.


I can happily say, that since lockdown we have had to think outside of the box and get creative with our meals as a family and funnily enough, we’ve absolutely loved it. Cooking as a family has become the new normal in our home and we are not ready to let that habit fade away easily.


Today, I present you with our version of “Salt and pepper chicken wings" of course we had to eat it with something, so we made jollof rice.
