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. Without further ado let’s get things cracking!

  • I called this my Green Queen Platter, cause of obvious reason🍃. I love when green vegetables stay green and crisp and one of the best ways to achieve that is through steaming them. .

These greens were seasoned to the garden gawds, don’t let the modest look fool you. A great way to wake up your veggies is using fresh herbs. A little oil or butter and pickapeppa, which is a Jamaican condiment that adds so much flavor to veggies. Also Sambal is a terrific way to add some kick into your veggies. And another thing when eating so many veggies in one day I never feel guilty about dessert😉.
  • #tbt to these pot of beans! I put my heart, soul and foot in these thangs. I thought, I would have some left over to put in the freezer. But the way they tore this pot up it didn’t go past Tuesday😂. You can check out my recipe in my highlights♥️ I’ll have a more detailed recipe soon.
  • Red Beans & Rice Monday is a tradition in New Orleans that has carried on I’m sure for centuries. I can remember my mom soaking her beans overnight, cooking them as I got ready for school. .
.

By the end of the school day I would walk home and smell red beans & rice cooking from up the block! Every kitchen on the block and around the corner were on one accord it seems, cooking the same traditional meal on a Monday. .
.

The beautiful thing about New Orleans is the smell of the food in the air, particularly in the hood. Not sure what it’s smelling like these days with all the gentrification, but I know a house that’ll always have that nostalgic smell of good New Orleans food. That will catch your nose from blocks away... Mrs. Wilhemena House on Lapeyrouse St. the heart of the 7th ward. This is my Momma’s recipe and good God if you’ve ever had her beans you already know! Watch how I prepared it on my #instastory.
