Sweet and Spicy Chicken ( oriental style )

Saturday is our usual grocery shopping day and  we buy everything in bulk for the whole week that day. But  sometimes if we have weekend plans we do shopping a day early on friday night and Friday night means S need some non veg, be it chicken or fish  so if we r going to supermarket on friday night, S will dissappear with trolley in between and I have to ring him on his mobile  to find him and most of the time he will be in  hot deli corner where they have a counter for  cooked chicken thighs and wings. If not there he will be cooked meal section looking for Non veg options or in Fish Monger section ! Coming to point, so  we always pick up something every time and a  sweet and spicy chicken wings has been our  favourite choice  for a long time but maybe after eating it repeatedly we  got bored of it and moved onto different options. But recently I tried a sweet and spicy chicken at home and we all loved it and I ended up making the same thing 3 times in few days gap and after the third time I decided to give it a break at least for a month but I did click the picture last time and I wanted to share this recipe as soon as possible as I might forget all about it  and I definitely  don't want to loose this recipe.
