Have you heard of the famous Paper Wrapped Chicken from Thailand or South East Asia? It is a chicken dish which the chicken is marinated with special sauce and then wrapped with paper before frying. With the long marinade time, the flavor of the sauce will go deep into the meat and make the chicken full of flavor. You can either use chicken meat or chicken wing.
You can choose to unwrap the chicken before serve or leave the paper on. Remember to use the paper which can stand high heat as you need to deep fry the chicken wrapped with paper in high heat oil. This is an ideal finger food for any party or gathering.
