Chicken wings in caramelized sugar

Method: Heat the corn oil and drop in the sugar until it starts browning. Place the chicken in in the pan and stir gently until the chicken is browned. It should take 2 minutes. Now, add the chopped carrots and 3 table spoons of water. Cover and let simmer 5 minutes.

Now, add the potatoes, chop vegetables (except the spring onion and Brazil nut), add the crème fraîche and the chicken stock. Mix well and cover to simmer for another 10 minutes on medium heat. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Remove from the heat and serve topped with grated Brazil nuts and spring onion.

Serve with a freshly cooked mini baguette

The brown sugar give a little colour to this dish which would have looked very white without it. Enjoy!
