INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) mirin
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) sake
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) soy sauce
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) Ginger Ground
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) Garlic Powder
  • 2 pounds (1 kg) chicken wing pieces
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Homemade Wasabi Furikake Seasoning, plus additional for sprinkling (see separate recipe)
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

Preparation

  • 1 Mix brown sugar, mirin, sake, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and garlic powder in medium bowl. Reserve ½ cup (125mL) for the glaze.
  • 2 Place chicken wings in large resealable plastic bag. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes or longer for extra flavor.
  • 3 Stir cornstarch into reserved marinade. Bring to boil in small saucepan. Reduce heat to low; simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in Wasabi Furikake Seasoning. Pour glaze into large bowl. Set aside.
  • 4 Remove wings from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread 1, each flat and drumstick, wing piece crosswise onto 2 skewers. Grill wings over medium heat 20 to 25 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally.
  • 5 Brush wings with reserved glaze. Sprinkle with additional Wasabi Furikake Seasoning and green onions before serving.
  • 6 Tip: Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. This prevents them from burning on the grill.
