looking for WING"S plum sauce love this

The question was what is our favorite Chinese menu item. My children and I love Chicken Corn Soup. Although as much as I have tried I cannot find a recipe for it. It seems easy enough to replicate but I seem to be doing something wrong. Among our other favorites there is Sweet Sour Pork or Chicken, BBQ Pork Chow Mein Cashew Chicken.

I have been to my fair share of Chinese restaurants and buffets in my lifetime. The buffets are the best deal. You get to sample so many different dishes. I love all the different flavors and tastes of chicken. Orange chicken is a yummy dish with a sweet little tang to it. This is a great set of recipes to save to your collection and keep as a reference for future dishes.

Im looking for the recipe for Elephant Bar Crispy Honey Orange Shrimp

I have been looking for a recipe for Chrispy fried duck. Our local Chinese take-out restaurant changed hands and the new owners don't make it!!!

I do love the occasional Chinese takeout, but it would be so fun to try making some of these dishes myself! There are so many options here...I can see all of my favorites listed.
