What you'll need:
- Half a cucumber, ribboned with a veg peeler
- Sticky rice or egg fried rice
Time: 40 minutes
Before you begin, pre-heat your oven to 220C. Take a large roasting dish, and toss the wings in the soy sauce, 2 tbsp of the vinegar, 120g of the sugar and plenty of cracked black pepper. Roast well for 40 minutes or so, turning regularly to give them a nice nut-brown lacquer.
While the chicken is roasting, bring the rest of the vinegar and sugar to boil. You can do this in a small saucepan, over a medium heat for about a minute or until the sugar is dissolved. Leave it to cool, and when serving, toss it over the cucumber ribbons and chicken wings. Serve with a scoop of sticky or egg fried rice, and enjoy!
