In the Chinese traditions of the past, Chicken wings symbolise the idea of 'flying high' and also a flourishing career. Chinese people make chicken dishes for the Lunar New Year to bring good luck since chicken symbolises a good start.
The chicken wings will be cooked faster and easier when you cut them into three sections and make a small incision in the meat of the middle section of the wings.
Cook the bigger portion of the wings first and add wing tips half way through simmering so that they will be cooked at the same time.
Add extra salt instead of soy sauce for stronger taste. Do not put in too much soy sauce.
