teba shio (鶏の手羽先 塩焼き) | grilled salted chicken wings

Today my world shifted.

See, the LAM and I usually live in harmony because we like different parts of the same thing. For example, he’d happily eat the pineapple filling (yucks) in pineapple tarts and give me the crust (yum). 

But today, I made a horrifying discovery. 

I made teba shio for dinner. In case you don’t already know, they are basically salted chicken wings that are grilled. When I cook chicken wings at home, I like using the mid-joints whenever possible.

The LAM and I were eating dinner when he said to me:

LAM: Actually, these are the best part of the chicken, aren’t they?

Me: But you prefer the drumlets!!

LAM: I used to but these are way nicer. 

Me: So does that mean I can no longer exchange my chicken drumlets for your mid-joints?

LAM: Yep.

Me: ^*^%$*!#$#@#^*_&#@!!

Life is unfair.

*SULK*

On the other hand, however, these wings are very good! 

And you will not believe how easy they are to make. Indeed, all you need, apart from the chicken wings, are three ingredients! Yes, I kid you not!

Here’s how.

In a bowl, place the chicken wings, or drumlets, or mid-joints. Add sake and marinate for 15 minutes.

At the end of 15 minutes, dry the wings with kitchen towels. The wings need to be very dry.

Add a generous amount of sea salt (not table salt, please!) and black pepper and mix to coat the wings.

IMG_6787Arrange the wings on a lined and greased oven tray. I placed the chicken on a wire rack but you can place them directly on the lined tray.

Spray or brush the chicken with oil. Grill at 200°C for 15 minutes. Flip the chicken, spray or brush with oil and grill at 240°C for 15 minutes, or until the chicken wings are golden brown. (You can also air fry the chicken wings.)

Sprinkle shichimi togarashi on the wings and serve immediately.

These wings are grilled but they taste as good as fried chicken wings!

My kids absolutely loved them. Should I start feeding them drumlets instead? :P
