Servings 1


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


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Use a grater to grate ginger and add to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add Japanese sake into the large mixing bowl and mix well.
  • 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.
  • In the meantime, prepare oven tray by lining with aluminum foil and spraying with cooking oil.
  • Strain marinade from chicken wings and place on the oven tray. Remove any large pieces of ginger (small pieces will be ok).
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides. If you want a little heat, sprinkle some optional Togarashi as well.
  • 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.
  • Once browned, flip chicken and broil for additional 8-10 minutes or until browned.
  • Transfer to a serving plate and serve with optional lemon wedge.
