Total Time:

12 cocktail servings

  • Wings:
  • 2 dozen chicken wings, about 3 1/4 pounds, rinsed and patted dry
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted in a skillet over medium heat until lightly browned
  • Leaves from 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Teriyaki Sauce:
  • 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 fresh, hot red chile, halved
  • 5 garlic cloves, halved
  • 2 -inch piece fresh ginger, smashed with the side of a large knife

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Season the chicken wings with salt and pepper and drizzle a little olive oil on them to prevent sticking. Lay the wings in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until the skin gets crispy and the wings are cooked through.

Meanwhile, combine the teriyaki sauce ingredients in a large saucepan. Simmer over low heat and reduce until slightly thickened. Pour the sauce into a large bowl. Dump the wings into the bowl and toss to coat them with the sauce. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and cilantro. Serve hot.

Very easy to make and very tasty. I made this to bring to a party so I poured the teriyaki over the wings for transport and then put the tray in the oven when I got there. It was a big hit and I'm glad I did the cilantro and sesame topping because it looked good on the table. That said, the teriyaki could be thicker to be more of a glaze. And there is way too much of it. I thought the salt level was fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We had these wings on the 4th. Everyone enjoyed them immensely! This will be come our new party treat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks Tyler, Though I used it for the Teriyaki recipe only. I used it on a whole boneless chicken instead. It is Great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Didn't have grapefruit juice so unsweetened pineapple juice was a great 2nd choice. Actually marinated the wings in it and then cooked it down for suace. YUM item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just an FYI on the wings: In a another wing recipe I read the same reviews of the wings not coming out crispy, but if you par boil the wings first, pat them dry, then proceed with the seasoning and in to the oven they will crisp up! I will be trying this recipe, but probably use a Ponzo sauce instead of the soy sauce and grapefruit juice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is my favorite wings recipe. I've tried a couple variations but don't think I ever used a whole cup of grapefruit juice. That might be why mockingbirds72 turned out so bad. In the video, Tyler only used 1/2 cup. This should be soy sauce based. Grapefruit juice based? eew! Update: Don't let the leftover sauce go to waist. I used it over boneless diced chicken. Stir fry to brown the meet. Add diced shiitake mushrooms, red bell pepper and waterchestnuts. Let it cook for another 5 -10 minutes to thicken. Served over rice. Wifed loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I will agree with some of the other comments, the chicken was not crispy but that was my intent. I used chicken thighs. After baking them I chopped it up, put it in the sauce and placed a scoop full over stir fry! It was simply delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Baking the wings left them tasteless with the exception of the salt and pepper I initially put on them . They were not crispy at all even though I followed the directions . Good sauce on bad wings leaves you licking the sauce off of the wings and throwing them away . item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed the recipe as given without making any changes. I'm giving it a one star because it was way too salty even when using low sodium soy sauce and the sauce never had the right consistency after reducing it for more then 30 minutes. I also found the sauce bitter, it would probably be better to use pineapple juice instead of grapefruit juice as suggested in the reviews. This recipe needs too much tweaking to come out good and doesn't deserve a 5 star rating. item not reviewed by moderator and published
