Gui Fei Chicken Wing 贵妃鸡翅

Yang Yu Huan, or Yang Gui Fei (Imperial Consort Yang), also known as one of the Four Beauties of ancient China, was the consort of Emperor Xuanzhong. As with the beauties of that time, Yang Gui Fei had a full and plump body. Her favorite fruit was lychees, which at that time only grew in southern China. The emperor, in order to please her, got the lychee delivered day and night by the imperial courier's fast horses to the capital for her.
