Teriyaki Chicken is my recipe of the day for the Summer Games blogging week. The Olympics will be going on starting today! And I have been sharing some Japanese steakhouse recipes in honor of the host country, Japan.

Today winds down the sharing of recipes just as the Olympics start to wind  up.

Let’s wish them  all the luck we can  in  keeping everyone safe and covid free. I have my concerns about them. It would be a shame to see athletes who have worked so hard to train year after year get their hopes dashed by that nasty bug.

So while  I am not sure  how I feel  about cramped quarters with  the  Delta variant  raging,  it is  really none of my business. The  nations joining the  event think they have it worked out and lets hope they do.

Anyway,  today I am  sharing teriyaki chicken which  I grilled up as drumettes. This will serve two as a main or four as  an appetizer.

The marinade  and sauce in this recipe will work  on any type  chicken.  The basics are to grill  chicken to  165F, then sauce and set. So use the probe thermometers  (which are really quite affordable) and go by the time only as a hint of when to start checking that internal temperature.

Bigger wing pieces will take longer, and I have  seen wild variance in size.

That is, if you can find them at all. There seems to be a mysterious wing shortage. I guess chickens aren’t flying  as much these days. And didn’t feel they needed them. 😉

But  I  do  and  you do too!

  1. These wings are so good and are now my favorite wing recipe. That teriyaki sauce is absolutely wonderful and so delicious. The wings were easy to prep and grill. Thank you!

  2. Yummy, yummy. Easy to follow and delicious! Because of the extreme heat and desperately needing to avoid being outdoors, placed it in the oven and then finished it under the broiler. I’ll definitely be adding this to my regular rotation. Wound up marinating for 2 days and I will definitely marinate on the longer side as the flavor penetrates beautifully. Thank you, Sue, for sharing. Made it for The AmaZ’ing Race 2023 – Japan leg.
