This is an easy yet satisfying chicken wings recipe for black pepper lovers. They are gone really quickly, so I know they are good. The ingredients are basic and can be commonly found in a Chinese kitchen. The great thing about home-made version is that you can adjust the intensity of the pepper to suit your taste buds. Even though the pepper flavour is strong, we can still taste the sweetness of the chicken and the deliciously savoury marinade.
