I’ve got winter blues. The weather is dreary and COLD. We have so much snow until I am so fed-up of shoveling it. We are expecting more snow next week. At this time of the year I wish I am in Malaysia celebrating CNY with my family. I need something to perk me up. What can be better than this sinful chicken dish? When I saw the recipe over at Wendy’s not too long ago, it spoke to me. Actually it yelled at me “Make me right away” ha ha... I did slight changes to Wendy’s recipe. Instead of tapioca starch I used cornstarch and add some garlic to it. This is a wonderful dish and I think it will be nice to serve it for CNY reunion dinner.
