You guys know that I like to give some feedback to the foods you are about to make. Let’s not make this teriyaki chicken wings an exception, shall we?

Origins of Teriyaki.

The word teriyaki in Japanese is referred to a technique of either grilling or broiling some sort of a protein with a sauce (tare) that gives it a shin. The shin or the shine comes from that beautiful glaze obtained from the sugar that is used in the sauce. Traditionally the base ingredients for the ‘tare’ were soy sauce, sake (or mirin), and sugar (or honey). The sauce would be cooked down to a certain consistency in order to be used either for marination or for basting of a chosen seafood or protein. These days you can find many variables of teriyaki sauce. Not to mention the ways you can incorporate it into your food.

If you are fond of sweet and slightly salty sauces, teriyaki is your guy. You can pretty much pair it with anything. Save this sauce recipe and try it with different things. Let’s play with it for wings, alight?

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp crushed tomato
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar (both seasoned and regular will work)
  • 2 Tbsp light brown sugar (or honey)
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red chili pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1-inch ginger, chopped (or 1/2 tsp ginger powder)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • sesame seeds and scallions for garnish

Directions:

Place a medium skillet (which can easily fit all your wings in one place) on the stove, add the olive oil and heat it on medium heat. Place all the wings in the skillet and start cooking them. Pre-cooking the wings will ensure that the wings cook through by the end of cooking time. We will pre-cook the wings for about 6 minutes.

While the wings are slowly cooking you are to prep the teriyaki sauce for the wings. In between mixing the sauce, flip the wings to the other side to cook them evenly.

In a small bowl add all of the teriyaki sauce ingredients: soy sauce, crushed tomato, sesame oil, rice vinegar, chopped garlic, chopped ginger (or powder), water and red chili peppers. Mix the sauce really well as you want the sugar to dissolve or honey to mix well.

Pour the sauce over the wings. It will start bubbling and boiling almost immediately. Turn the heat down to low, close the lid fo the skillet and simmer the wings in the teriyaki sauce.

In about 10 minutes open the lid and flip the wings. Close the lid and keep on cooking. Flip the chicken wings one more time in about 10 more minutes.

The liquid from the sauce will be used to cook the chicken and will eventually evaporate. Once that happens you will see the sugars slowly separating from the oil. This is the time for you to gently flip, move, maneuver chicken wings to get coated in the sauce/tomato/sugar. The extra oil will remain in the skillet.

Turn off the heat, garnish with sesame seeds and scallions. You can serve these wings as party food or serve them over rice to enjoy its deliciousness.

These teriyaki chicken wings are marinated overnight and then baked in the oven for a tasty appetizer or main dish. And sure, you can buy teriyaki sauce at the grocery store, but it's much better when you make it from scratch—and it's not at all difficult.

This recipe calls for large chicken wings. If you can't find them and need to use small chicken wings, reduce the initial baking time by about 15 minutes. Feel free to use this marinade on shrimp, a chicken stir-fry with veggies, or even as a finishing glaze for shrimp. (It's also good on simple baked chicken.) It's incredibly versatile. Here, we're focusing on wings because they're quick to cook and tender and moist thanks to the marinade.

Serve with rice and a steamed veggie on the side such as broccoli or sugar snap peas.


Honey Baked Teriyaki Chicken Wings

Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 pounds chicken wings or flats & drummettes
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
  • 3 teaspoons Sriracha
  • 1/2 tsp . Garlic Powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste & Glaze
  • Sesame seeds, if desired

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl combine the honey, Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce, Sriracha, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  2. Place fridge and marinate at least one hour or can be marinated overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Spray a baking pan with non-stick cooking spray, or I prefer to line with foil and then spray for easier cleanup.
  5. Remove chicken from fridge and place chicken wings (or flats and drummettes) in prepared baking pan in a single layer.
  6. Bake approximately 30 minutes for smaller sized wing pieces, or until cooked through. Turn chicken wings halfway through. (Time will vary depending on size of the wings or pieces)*!
  7. Remove from oven and place in a large bowl. Pour the Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste & Glaze over the chicken wings. Toss or stir gently to completely cover.
  8. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
  9. Serve and enjoy! Keep some wet cloths handy they are messy but finger licking good.

Notes

*Time will vary depending on size of the chicken wings or if using flats and/or drummettes. Smaller sized flats and drummettes baked in approximately 30 minutes. Additional time may be required for larger pieces.

Marinating time of one hour is sufficient, but overnight is preferred for the most flavor. If you like them less “saucy” just add less of the marinade and glaze.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 3 pounds chicken wings or drumettes

Whisk together the water, soy sauce, sugar, pineapple juice, vegetable oil, garlic, and ginger in a large glass or ceramic bowl until the sugar has dissolved. Add the chicken wings, coat with the marinade, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking dishes, and set aside.

Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess and place the chicken wings into the prepared baking dishes. Discard the remaining marinade. Bake the wings in the preheated oven until the chicken is cooked through and the glaze is evenly browned, about 1 hour.


Honey Teriyaki Baked Wings

    1) In a saucepan, add the soy sauce, 1/4 cup of water, mirin, brown sugar, sesame oil, ginger and garlic, and simmer until the brown sugar dissolves.

2) In a small bowl, mix together the 1 Tbsp of water and cornstarch and add it to the simmering sauce. Allow it to thicken, turn the heat off and let it come to room temperature, meanwhile, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

3) Mix together the sauce, honey and hot pepper flakes and set aside.

4) Tumble the wings in a disposable foil baking pan (or wrap your baking pan with aluminum foil a couple times) drizzle over about half the sauce, pop them in the oven to bake for about 45 minutes to an hour or until they develop some deep color and cook all the way through.

5) Make sure to flip the wings a couple times throughout the baking process and baste them (skin side up) every 5 minutes for the last 5 minutes of baking.

6) Move them to a platter, scatter over some sesame seeds and green onions and serve!

NOTE: I doubled the sauce recipe in the video so I could have some on hand to use throughout the week!


11. Rice

Another Asian staple &ndash rice! A simple steamed sticky Japanese rice is best for Teriyaki Chicken, but other varieties work well too.

For instance, if you want a creamy rice dish, cook it in coconut milk. Or, if you want something more flavorful, make fried rice! Saute day-old rice with onions, eggs, and your favorite veggies.

Bright and tangy pickle juice adds refreshing balance to the creamy mayonnaise dressing, for a cookout-friendly side that goes great with everything from chicken and burgers, to grilled steaks and seafood.


Adam and Joanne's Tips

  • To grate ginger, use a fine microplane to grate. If you do not have a microplane, you can mince the ginger. If you do this, make sure the ginger is cut into very small pieces.
  • We use mirin in this recipe. It is a Japanese sweet rice wine. You can usually find it in the international aisle of larger grocery stores or in Asian markets. Mirin is a sweet rice wine used in Japanese cooking. Not only does it add flavor to this recipe, it also provides luster to the teriyaki sauce. Dry sherry, sweet marsala wine, dry white wine, and rice vinegar are good substitutes, but you may find that you need to add a touch more honey to the sauce.
