I’m thinking these Polynesian Chicken Wings would be awesome for football Sundays and casual parties!
But, of course they’re good for anything and everything. Everyone likes to have protein options, so they’re also a great addition to a heavy appetizer party. It helps that they’re pretty on a platter. Make Polynesian chicken wings for your next gathering with friends. They have a teriyaki flavor to them, and they’re delicious!
My weird family is actually happy to eat these sweet, teriyaki-style chicken wings for dinner too. Serve over some rice, and you’ve got yourself a meal!
How to make Polynesian Chicken Wings:
Marinate and bake. That’s it! But first you need to make sure your chicken wings are trimmed.
How to trim chicken wings:
Sometimes you can buy wings already cut up at the store. They’ll be more expensive that way. When you buy whole wings, you can cut them yourself. This means they need to be trimmed in three parts. All you’ll need is a pair of sharp kitchen scissors or a sharp knife. If you stretch out the whole wing, you will see that there are three parts to the wing (the wing tip, the wingette and the drumstick). When you stretch out the wing, you should be able to see the three joints. Cut off the tip to separate it from the wingette. You can discard the tips (or put them in a zip baggie and freeze them for making chicken stock at a later time). And then cut between the wingette and the drumstick. You’ll use the wingettes and drumsticks to make this polynesian chicken wings recipe.
