Ginger Sake Chicken Wings


One of our good friends was looking over this website 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?”. 

If you’ve never cooked Asian/Japanese food before, I could see how it is 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.  I assure you though, follow our steps there is no reason to be intimidated.

But just for our good friend, we came up with this recipe that requires a 1-2 throw it in the oven approach!  It still maintains very Asian/Japanese flavors and we hope they enjoy this one!

This one is low-carb/keto approved at ~1g of net carbs per serving. We would describe the taste as juicy salted chicken with a bite of ginger pepper balanced with a sweet lemon finish.

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 of Ginger
  • 1 Cup of Japanese Sake
  • Sprinkle of Salt and Black Pepper
  • 2 Lemon Wedges (optional)
  • Togarashi (optional)

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

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

3) Add sake in a large mixing bowl and mix well.

4) Place chicken wings inside a large mixing bowl 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 chicken wings and place on oven tray.  Remove any large pieces of ginger (small pieces will be ok).

7) Sprinkle moderately with salt and pepper on both sides.  If you want a little heat, sprinkle 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.

9) Once browned, flip chicken and broil for additional 8-10 minutes or until browned.  If the chicken is browning too quickly, lower the tray to rack below.

10) Transfer to a serving plate and squeeze lemon wedge (optional).

Hope you enjoy our friend’s requested 1-2 step Keto Ginger Sake Chicken Wings!
