Grilled Teriyaki Wings

Happy Football Sunday!

I can’t watch football without munchies and libations.  So today I made myself a batch of Grilled Teriyaki Wings with a Sweet Sticky Glaze, Grilled Red Potatoes and Zucchini. If you’re serving a crowd, you might want to double this recipe.  Here’s how I made my awesome Grilled Teriyaki Wings, Sweet Sticky Glaze and Grilled Veggies.

I started with 3 lbs of whole chicken wings. I left the tips on my wings – wing tips makes perfect little handles.

Here’s how I made my Brine. I added all of these ingredients to a bowl;

4 cups water

2 cups brown sugar

1 bulb of garlic (sliced in half with cloves pulled apart)

8 slices fresh ginger

4 tablespoons kosher salt

6-8 sprigs fresh thyme

juice from 1 fresh lime (cut lime into 4 pieces)

Whisk all the ingredients together then add chicken wings

I covered my bowl with a lid and brined the wings overnight for maximum flavor.

The next day I made my Sweet Sticky Glaze.  I added all of the ingredients (listed below) to a small sauce pan and simmered over low heat or until the glaze was slightly reduced down.  Here’s the ingredients for my Sweet Sticky Glaze;

2 cups teriyaki sauce

3/4 cup Orange Marmalade Jam

2 tablespoons honey

1 large piece (1 inch size) fresh ginger cut into slices

1 medium head fresh garlic (separated, paper removed and smashed)

1 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

ground black pepper

Pinch Aleppo Pepper or red pepper flakes (optional)

 Grilling the wings

I removed all of the wings from the marinade and rinsed them off with cold water and patted them dry. I tossed my wings with 2 tablespoons of Toasted Sesame Oil.  I didn’t add any other seasoning before I put them on the grill.  I grilled my wings 3-4 minutes per side and basted them a couple of times with the Sweet Sticky Glaze.  Par boiled the red potatoes until they are fork tender before grilling.  I slathered all the veggies with my homemade roasted garlic butter and veggie seasoning.  Grilled veggies for about 3-4 minutes per side – then I removed them to a serving dish and covered with aluminum until I was ready to serve.

After grilling my wings – I put them in a baking pan, brushed each with more of the Sticky Sweet Glaze, covered  pan with aluminum and place the pan on the top rack of my grill.  I continued to cook the wings for about 15-18 minutes covered until they were nice and tender.

I had to sample the veggies (with a side of Ranch Dressing) while I was waiting for my wings……….and YES they were so good.  They were nice golden brown (on the top), tender and delicious in the center!

After waiting patiently for my wings,  lunch is finally ready just in time for the second half of the Chargers game…….Go Chargers! In case you are wondering…….NO I didn’t eat all that food.  I made extra so I won’t have to cook for the next couple of days.
