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

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.

  • I tried peeling this pineapple 🍍 with my fingers like a girl I saw on a video 🤦🏽‍♀️ first: She either had a riper pineapple, or some strong fingers, cause it was not peeling apart like that for me. Lastly, that method must only apply to people stranded on an island she made it look too easy. Last lastly, my son asked if I ate this pineapple like that with a confused look 😂 He thought I was a savage for a minute. But it did make a cute little heart 💛
