Sticky Teriyaki Wings

Share it Please
Even if you don't eat meat, you have to try this recipe.

I don't care if you use tofu, vegetables, or any other vegetarian/vegan meat replacement. The sauce recipe is to die for.

Slightly sweet, slightly salty, and with a little bit of heat, these wings are a great change from the classic buffalo chicken wings. To be honest, I've never really been a fan of buffalo sauce. I always preferred the Asian sauces, Caribbean jerk, or just plain old honey barbeque.

These wings (I used drumettes actually) fit into the Asian category which is what I was in the mood for tonight. I served them with coleslaw, grilled baby carrots, and grilled pineapple for a delicious, filling meal.

Why so much grilling? We just bought a new grill and tonight we tested it out for the first time. We grilled pork chops, carrots, and pineapple. All of them were delicious. The pineapple was sweet and juicy, the grilling brought out the wonderful natural sweetness of the carrots, and the pork chops were tender and flavorful. Suffice to say, it was an amazing dinner. And did I mention how great the pineapple was? ;)

With all that grilling, the chicken drumettes were actually cooked in the oven. But the skin still got kinda crispy and the teriyaki had soaked into the chicken, so they were completely delicious. Next time I'll probably use chicken breasts instead, but really any cut of chicken would work. You don't even have to use chicken. Just make the sauce and pour it over whatever you want. It's that good.

Inspired by this recipe

1/2 c. water
1/2 c. gluten-free soy sauce (I used Braggs Liquid Aminos)
1/2 c. honey or agave
2 T. pineapple juice
1/4 c. bacon grease or any other oil of choice
1 T. garlic, minced
1 T. fresh ginger, minced
1/4 tsp. cayenne 
1 1/2 lbs. chicken wings, drumsticks, drumettes, etc.

1. Combine all the ingredients, except the chicken, in a large bowl. Whisk well to combine.
2. Coat the chicken with the sauce. Make sure all of the chicken gets evenly coated. Let marinate for 1-4 hours. I marinated mine for about four hours and the chicken was tender and very flavorful.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking dish and arrange the chicken in the dish. Do NOT pour the rest of the marinade in.
4. Bake the chicken for about an hour or until preferred done-ness.
5. When your chicken has about 10-15 minutes of baking time left, pour the rest of the marinade in a small sauce pan and heat over medium heat. Let it come to a rapid bowl, so all the bacteria is cooked out of it.
6. Pour the leftover sauce into bowls for dipping.
7. Make sure you have a napkin nearby cuz you're gonna need it! Then enjoy. :)
