    55 min

    This is my recipe for jar doo chicken wings, a Chinese buffet item available in the US/Canada. They are crispy, slightly sweet, slighty salty and amazingly addictive.

    pertty good recipe, wasnt sure what flaovors to expect but it turned out great. Also works great as a dipping sauce for dumplings and spring rolls. Add some pepper flakes for extra spice.  -  07 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
