Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Wings Recipe

What are you grilling this weekend? How about these tasty chicken teriyaki wings from www.drugstoredivas.net?We are so excited for football season to be back, especially now that we have a house. We turned our garage into a home theater and use a projector to stream the games on our garage wall. To make homegating even more fun, we’ll pull the grill onto the driveway, sending up signals to the neighborhood to come over and enjoy some drinks, football, and whatever crazy concoction we feel like grilling.

This Sunday, Pete wanted to make wings. He asked me what kind I wanted and I immediately picked grilled chicken teriyaki wings. I have a great homemade teriyaki marinade recipe, so that’s what we went with. The wings were so good. We made five pounds and they were gone before the afternoon games were even done. So, next time, we’ll have to make ten pounds!

But, let’s chat about these for a minute first. I went the grocery store and originally went to buy wings. Because we were making wings. Make sense. But it’s a misnomer, really. The super nice guy behind the meat counter told me you actually want to purchase drumettes (not wings, not my second choice fryer wings either).

Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Wings

What You’ll Need:

  • 5 pounds of chicken drumettes
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup lite soy sauce
  • 3 inches of ginger
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup rice vinegar
  • Pinch of black pepper

What You’ll Do:

Peel the garlic and ginger. Chop them finely, then put them in a large bowl.

Into the bowl, add the soy sauce, honey, and rice vinegar. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge, about an hour, so the flavors can meld.

Throw the drumettes into the marinade and put the bowl back in the fridge for another hour or so.

Heat up your grill and put these right on the rack, flipping often. Cook them through. We use a charcoal grill, which just gives everything such a good extra layer of flavor.

We served them off of a wire cooling rack with celery, carrots, and ranch dressing (you can choose bleu cheese too).
