Homemade Japanese-Style BBQ Wings Recipe

While the Japanese flavored wings were pretty tasty, I decided I needed some BBQ wings in my life. Also I had some wings leftover since I bought too many before, so I figured I’d use them. This recipe was sooo good that we were sad when it was over!! I wonder if five more wings could fit in the frying pan. I think I’ll have to use the sauce for other cuts of chicken too.

I really need to figure out some better sides, but for now shredded cabbage is an easy go to.

Tonight’s Dinner: Japanese Flavored Wings

Since I started on my cooking journey I’ve created a little collection of recipes I’ve already tried, but I’m still trying to do one new one a week. Wings were on sale this week, so I decided to finally use my premium subscription and try out one of the top rated recipes for wings from Cookpad.

I made us 8 wings each but I’m not sure that was enough. This recipe left us both wanting more!
