How to Make Honey Teriyaki Chicken Wings
- 3 pounds chicken wings or drummettes
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 3/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted, for garnish
- 4 scallions, chopped, for garnish
- Put the wings in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish or 2-gallon zipper-top plastic bag. Stir the water and cornstarch together in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a medium-size skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, add the garlic and ginger, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Reduce the heat to low, add the ketchup, soy sauce, and honey, and stir until blended. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir until the sauce comes to a boil. Remove from
the heat and let cool, then pour half the sauce over the wings, (it becomes the marinade) and refrigerate the other half. Turn the wings in the marinade to coat them well
and cover the dish or seal the bag. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and pour the wings and marinade onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Bake chicken wings until cooked through, about 45 minutes, basting every 10 minutes with the reserved sauce.
A note from the party girl: At my house, we like our wings crispy. When the wings are cooked through, we drain the sauce and stick the wings under the broiler to
crisp them up a little bit.
*Do-Ahead Tip: At this point, you can let cool, cover, and refrigerate overnight, then reheat in a 325°F oven, covered with foil, for about 20 minutes.
- Remove the wings from the oven, arrange on a serving platter, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions.
