HK Style - Swiss Chicken Wings

Swiss Chicken Wings is not actually a "Swiss" recipe. The story goes that a foreigner in Hong Kong asked a waiter what was the name of the chicken wing dish he was eating and the waiter replied 'sweet sweet', but due to the difference in accents the foreigner thought he heard 'swiss swiss'. Hence now the name of Swiss Chicken Wings. This is my take on how to make this dish, which is commonly found in most HK Style cafes.

HK Style - Swiss Chicken Wings
Recipe adapted from afmag

  • 1kg chicken wings (drumlets separated from wings - you can keep them together if you wish)
  • 1 thumbsized piece of ginger (smashed)
  • 1 star anise
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of asian red chilli powder
  • 2 stalk spring onion (cut into 4cm sections)
  • a splash of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • pinch of white pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
