wings 036Teriyaki Chicken Wings: 1970s,

(Marilyn, Bunny, Clare and Karen)

  • 3-4 pound package uncooked chicken wings, drummettes or combination
  • Marinade:
  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup sake, cooking sherry, vermouth or dry white wine (my preference is cooking sherry)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or honey
  • 1/2 to 2 teaspoons minced or grated fresh ginger (depends on your taste for ginger)
  • 3 green onions, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or chopped

Optional: two recipes I found called for an additional 4 tablespoons Hoisin sauce, 3 tablespoons plum sauce and 2 tablespoons rice vinegar. I haven’t tried this variation but thought someone else might like to try it.

Mix all ingredients and add chicken pieces. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Baste 2 or 3 times during cooking.

Wing Man: My husband, David, is the wing man at our house. When he realized I was working on recipes for Wings, he readily contributed two of his recipes. They are less complicated than my Teriyaki Chicken Wing recipe and require less preparation. He also included his meatball recipe. Again not much preparation time. Poster by David.
