Japanese Style Chicken Wings


One of our good friends was looking at LCA and said “Wow, everything looks so good but also kind of intimidating.  Do you have any recipes that are more like step 1, 2 and throw it in the oven kind of dishes?”. 

If you’ve never cooked Asian food before, I could see how it’s intimidating, but really our recipes are designed to be simple!

The biggest difference between Western and Japanese cooking is that Japanese cooking requires many simple steps and layers.  But I assure you, follow our step-by-step pictures and there should be no reason to be intimidated!

But just for our good friend, we came up with this Japanese Style Chicken Wings recipe that requires a 1-2 throw it in the oven approach!  We hope you enjoy these juicy salted chicken wings that are infused with Asian flavors!

For this recipe, you would just need Japanese Sake and optional togarashi if you prefer a little heat.  Here is the sake we normally use for reference.  Everything else you can get at a local supermarket.

Now, let’s get started!

Prepping Time 5M

Marination Time 15M

Cook Time 20M

Total Time 40M

Net Carb/Serv ~1g

Servings 1-2

Ingredients

  • 8-12 Chicken Wings (we use the frozen ones from Costco)
  • 1 Inch Ginger
  • 1 Cup Japanese Sake
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Lemon Wedge (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp Togarashi (optional)

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Use a grater to grate ginger and add to a large mixing bowl.

3) Add Japanese sake into the large mixing bowl and mix well.

4) Place chicken wings inside a large mixing bowl and let it marinate for 15 minutes.  Periodically rotate chicken to ensure all parts are getting marinated.

5) In the meantime, prepare oven tray by lining with aluminum foil and spraying with cooking oil.

6) Strain marinade from chicken wings and place on the oven tray.  Remove any large pieces of ginger (small pieces will be ok).

7) Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides.  If you want a little heat, sprinkle some optional Togarashi as well.

8) Place oven on broil and rearrange rack to be around 6-8″ from the heating element (on our oven, it is the 2nd slot from the top).  Place the tray in the CENTER of the oven and broil chicken for 8-10 minutes or until browned.  Note – if the chicken is browning too quickly, lower the tray to rack below.

9) Once browned, flip chicken and broil for additional 8-10 minutes or until browned. 

10) Transfer to a serving plate and serve with optional lemon wedge.
