Teba Shio (Salted Chicken Wings) 鶏の手羽先 塩焼き

Jump to Recipe Discussion
  • I hope you had a fun Super Bowl Sunday.  The weather in San Francisco Bay Area was just amazing this past weekend – warm spring weather in February!  My husband and I invited our close friends and their kids to our house and I cooked for 20 people for the first time!  Teba Shio (手羽塩), or Salted Chicken Wings, was one of the menus and it was quite popular!

    Teba Shio is so easy to make.  The key is to soak the chicken wings in sake for 15 minutes.  You don’t have to use expensive sake for this process, but you do need 1 and 1/2 cup sake to make sure all the wings are covered in sake.

    Sake helps remove the gamey taste from the chicken, and this is extremely important when the seasoning for the chicken is just salt!

    If you like spicy food, sprinkle Shichimi Togarashi (Japanese seven spice).  After broiling the chicken, the skin gets so crispy and they are addicting and simply amazing!

    Recipe Notes

    The broiler pan helps getting rid of the oil dripping from the chicken wings while cooking so the wings will get crispy.
