Ingredients

Chicken Wings

  • 1 pound chicken wings patted dry
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder aluminum-free
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Teriyaki Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce alternatives: low sodium tamari (gluten-free) or coconut aminos (gluten-free and soy-free)
  • 3 tablespoons sake
  • 3 tablespoons mirin
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • cornstarch slurry as needed

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 °F (230 °C).
  • Add the chicken wing ingredients to a bowl. Toss until everything is well combined. Then bake the chicken wings for 25-30 minutes until they are crispy.
  • Next, add the teriyaki sauce ingredients to a pan and stir until they are combined.
  • Bring the sauce to a very gentle simmer, add some cornstarch slurry and let everything simmer until the sauce has thickened.
  • Transfer the chicken wings to the pan and toss until they are coated with teriyaki glaze. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional) and enjoy!

Notes

  • Cornstarch slurry: For the cornstarch slurry, mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water.
  • Garnish: I love to add some sesame seeds, but this is absolutely optional!
  • Sauce consistency: If the sauce should become too thick, you can add some water to thin it.
  • Low-medium heat: Don't try to make the sauce using high heat as it will most likely burn. Stick to low-medium heat cooking for this recipe.
