Garlic Miso Chicken Wings


Jump to Recipe

When we think of chicken wings here in the States, we probably think of the classics like buffalo wings (it’s made from chicken regardless of what Jessica Simpson says), hot wings, chili lime, etc. Well in Japan, they have their own set of classic chicken wings like sake marinated salt and pepper wings, sweet soy-glazed deep fried wings, and my personal favorite as well as today’s recipe – Garlic Miso Chicken Wings!  Why is this my favorite?  Well, just look at the name – how can you go wrong when combining garlic and miso together to create a wing that is bursting with garlic umami flavor!  Plus it’s really easy for make and great for meal prepping!  We used Nami’s @ JOC excellent recipe as a base and built on it to make it low-carb/keto.  So the next time you find yourself craving wings for your low-carb/keto snack, give this Japanese tebasaki (which just means chicken wings) a try!  Just a note, this recipe does require overnight marination, so we recommend making a large batch and freezing after marinating. That way, you can just defrost and cook it whenever you want!

  1. Is a good chunk of the flavor not lost upon washing? Have you tried these grilled rather than baked?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Kristina! As long as you marinate the wings overnight, all the flavors will be infused in the meat so washing will be ok. Actually, if you don’t wash off the marinate, it will burn in the cooking process and be super salty. We never tried BBQing them, but I don’t see how you could go wrong with adding an extra smoke flavor in there!
