Do you guys like chicken wings? I sure hope so because I’ve got the best chicken wing recipe for you today! And although it’s a cavity waiting to happen (you’ll see why), on the flip side it’s easy, quick, and finger lickin’ good! These wings have always been a BIG hit at any event! The trick, of course, is to cook them long enough so that the meat falls off the bone. My hand written recipe is titled “Mom’s Chicken Wings” so I’m assuming it is in fact my moms, but I swear the first time I tried these was at my brother’s house when his ex wife made them years and years ago. I actually mentioned this to my mom and it seemed like she wasn’t sure herself that’s why I don’t feel bad telling you all. Of course, whatever the case may be, one thing I know for sure is that they are in a word “AWESOME”! Oh, and addicting too! Definitely addicting!
If you can believe it, we’ve gone through the years calling them “Mom’s Chicken Wings” but if you ask me, that doesn’t really describe them very well! So today I name them!
CANDIED TERIYAKI CHICKEN WINGS
SKILL LEVEL: Beginner
PREP TIME: 5 minutes (marinate over night)
COOK TIME: 2 hours
5 lbs. chicken wings (have your butcher cut the tips off)
1 cup of white sugar
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 12 oz. bottle of Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste and Glaze
Garlic Powder (eyeball it)
Put chicken wings in a roasting pan. In a bowl mix together both sugars, the terriyaki baste and glaze, and garlic powder until smooth. Pour over the chicken wings. Stir the chicken wings generously. You want the sauce to cover them well! Cover with foil and put in refrigerator over night. You’ll want to stir them every two to three hours until you go to bed.
In the morning, give them a another stir. Bake in oven on bottom rack at 325 degrees UNCOVERED for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I usually cook them the entire 2 hours.
Lastly, ENJOY and don’t forget to invite me over! I’ll bring dessert!
