“Swiss wings”? You hear it right ,but it has nothing related to Swiss nor it’s neither originated in Switzerland. This confusing dish name was a classic lost in translation scenario between “Sweet!” and “Swiss!” according to Wiki.
"瑞士雞翼"(Cantonese pronunciation: seoi6 si6 gai1 jik6) is one of the most popular dishes in local restaurants/Cha Chaan Teng in Hong Kong and are commonly served with instant noodles as a lunch option.
So, it is literally braised sweet soy sauce chicken wings. It is so easy to make and you can always make extra and freeze for later meals!🍽️
