Teriyaki Glazed Fried Chicken Wing’s

I was always told that there ain’t no thing but a chicken wing, (sorry grammar police) I had to say that. And when there’s a savory, sweet, teriyaki glaze upon those infamous chicken parts you too will see why it truly isn’t a thing but a chicken wing.

Chicken wing’s are the most beloved part of the chicken all over the world. It is the star of every sport’s gathering, party, and Friday’s pizza night. Just about every week my son ask “are we having chicken wing’s? He has donned himself the “chicken wing king” after all! I giggle every time he mentions that. Secretly, I feel that way about chicken wing’s too (smirking), where’s my crown?!

A trick I learned from a Korean cook, and forgive me I cannot recall her name, but her secret to crunchy fried chicken was battering it up in cornstarch and frying it twice. And I’ve been using that little nugget ever since. Frying the chicken twice using the cornstarch as the flour of choice makes a difference, and I have fried chicken in many ways, but frying it this way gives it a crunch that last even after it has sat overnight. Another key is frying it in grape seed oil, grape seed oil is my favorite it’s light and add’s to the crispy texture without weighing it down. The end result is a beautiful, crispy, golden brown wing that’ll make you want to sing…(I can’t help myself sometimes with the rhymes) you will at least do a dance, I promise that.

There are no limits when it comes to sauces for chicken wing’s and teriyaki was the goal. Sweet, savory, with a hint of spice makes this glaze a huge winner.

Ingredients for the honey teriyaki sauce.

  • Mirin
  • Soy sauce
  • Fresh squeezed tangerine juice
  • Honey
  • Scallions
  • Spices

Mirin is a versatile condiment that you must, if you don’t already, have in your kitchen pantry. You can find it in any Asian grocery store, or even your local grocery store it’s usually in the Asian cooking isle. You will fall in love with this condiment. Soy sauce, who doesn’t keep this in their fridge? No kitchen should be without soy sauce. Tangerine juice was so fresh in the sauce but, feel free to use orange juice in place of tangerine just use a fresh orange. There’s nothing like a glaze over hot fried chicken!

For the seasoning on the chicken you will need Chinese 5 spice which can be found in most grocery stores. This seasoning makes it a breeze to get your chicken frying you have all the Asian flavors combined in one! This seasoning makes for a simple process after all you want to eat these delicious wing’s.

  • Bonita🍎Crumb. It’s apple season and there are so many apple orchards here in the the Big Apple you just gotta go further North to reach them. .

Today we visited Masker Orchards in Warwick NY, there’s 14 different varieties of apples grown here. And the Red Delicious were the sweetest I’ve ever tasted. The farms are such a great escape from the concrete jungle, and many New Yorker’s find there way further North to break away from the norm. I love NY for this season alone🍎🍏
  • Beans, rice, chicken and plantains always make a complete meal. Now add a salad on the side to balance things out all I had was a lime, but it worked out well. I’ve been on a roll with cooking beans as of late and the family has been loving it.
