【Braised chicken wings in ice wine sauce】
Last fall, we bought a quite few bottles of ice wine with friends as group buy. I like this ice wine, just with perfect sweetness. We sometime have some with dinner. Today when I made this chicken dish, I poured almost ½ bottle of ice wine in it. It turned out to be very nice. Both MaomaoDad and Maomao loved them.
