Delicious Chicken Wings with Sweet and Salty Sauce

Delicious Chicken Wings with Sweet and Salty Sauce

The crispy skin of the chicken wings and the sweet and salty sauce is exquisite! You can sprinkle on pepper and make karaage style chicken wings too.


Chicken wings - the midsection and tip
about 10
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
Light brown sugar ( sugar )
1/2 tablespoon
Sesame oil
1 to 2 tablespoons
White sesame seeds
to taste


1. Wash the wings and wipe off the water. Make cuts to underside (opposite side from the skin side).
2. Heat a pan with a generous amount of sesame oil and fry from the skin side facing down. Don't turn it until it has a golden brown color.
3. Turn over when the color is golden brown and cooked through thoroughly. Check if it is cooked through or not, peeking in the cuts you made in Step 1.
4. When the chicken is cooked through, wipe off the excess oil in the pan with a paper towel.
5. Add the seasoning ingredients, soy sauce, sake, mirin and sugar you mixed in advance to the pan and coat the wings well in low heat.
6. When the sweet and salty sauce has coated the wings well, then it's done! Sprinkle white sesame seeds if you like and enjoy.

Story Behind this Recipe

I used our family's secret sweet and salty sauce (the amount of ingredients, soy sauce : sake : mirin : sugar = 1 : 1 : 1 : 1/2 ratio plus a drizzle of sesame oil) and arranged it to make this recipe.
