Fall is coming. It is my absolute favorite time of the year! Football games, marching bands, kids back in school, new shows on TV, football. Yes, I love to watch college football! And speaking of football – with football come chicken wings! That may sound strange, but to me they go hand in hand! And it is my firm belief that hot wings are meant to be shared – so invite your friends and family to come on over and share some of these incredible wings with you!
The secret to the best hot wings is usually in the sauce. I love hot wings…Buffalo Wings, Fiery Asian Hot Wings, Cajun Honey Lime Wings, Crispy Wings – I’ll take them all! I especially love wings with teriyaki sauce. There is something about teriyaki sauce, with it’s combination of soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and rice wine that is just intoxicating.
You cannot go wrong with this sauce. I was pinched for time so I used bottled all-natural teriyaki sauce, but you could easily make your own. The sauce for this recipe could not get any easier.
How To Make Teriyaki Hot Wings
- Just mix teriyaki sauce, hoisin sauce, sriracha, honey, garlic and cornstarch into a glass measuring cup. Stir to combine and it is ready.
- Arrange wings in an oven safe 9 x 13 baking dish. This size dish is perfect for 3 – 4 pounds of wings.
- Pour the sauce over the wings to coat. The sauce will fill the bottom of the baking pan and will start to marinade the chicken while baking.
- Once the wings have baked, throw the pan under the broiled for 2 – 3 minutes to get a good char on the wings.
- Then serve by sprinkling on sliced green onions, or sesame seeds, parsley, cilantro, lemon peel or what ever you like.
So, how did Americans come to fall in love with the chicken wing?
There is no glamorous story behind America’s love for the chicken wing. It’s actually one of convenience.
As the 70’s turned into the 80’s, people began to yearn for more convenient options for chicken that were easier to make and eat. The result was the boneless, skinless chicken breast. It’s still America’s favorite cut of chicken! In the wake of boneless, skinless chicken breast’s amazing popularity, the price of wings, which are attached to the breast meat, went down. As the chicken breast became more popular, the wing was almost a byproduct, and restaurants could get them very cheaply.
Their low cost is why bars like the Anchor Bar, founder of the “Buffalo Wing”, began to serve wings. And it was in those bars that the connection between watching sports and eating wings was born. One of the best things about chicken wings is that they are a great group food. A big plate of wings can be shared among a lot of people.”
