Jenn's Slowcooker Teriyaki Chicken Wings
-1 kilo of chicken wings
-Olive oil for frying
-2 cups of reduced salt soy sauce
-2 cups of brown sugar
-2 cups of sake (or substitute with water)
-4 cloves of garlic, whole (use more if desired)
-1 brown onion, sliced thick
-4 carrots, sliced thick
-Wash & pat the chicken wings dry.
-Cut the tips of the chicken wings off.
-Place wings in a large frying pan or wok with a few tablespoons of olive oil.
-Season with salt & pepper & grill for 10 minutes on the first side.
--While waiting, mix the soy sauce, brown sugar & water in your slow cooker. Mix well so that the sugar dissolves.
-Add the garlic to the sauce & let it sit while you finish grilling the wings.
-Flip the chicken wings over & season the other side with salt & pepper. Grill for another 10 minutes.
(If you like your wings extra crispy grill longer)
-Remove your chicken wings & place in the slowcooker.
-Spoon sauce over the wings.
-Add your chopped onions & carrots.
-Let wings cook on LOW for 4-5 hours or on HIGH for 2-2.5 hours.
-Serve over rice.
Note: The standard recipe for Japanese Teriyaki sauce is 1:1:1. I use 2 cups of soy sauce, brown sugar & water because my family likes the extra sauce to spoon over rice. If you don't want all of the extra sauce reduce soy, sugar & water to 1 cup each.
