The weekends have been absolutely crazy lately. There seems to be something nearly every Saturday and Sunday, mostly fun stuff so i’m not complaining. All this running around has made our tradition of family football Sundays with my parents and brothers a bit tough. Weeks into the season and it was just this past Sunday that we finally got together with a delicious spread of snacks, a friendly game of football in the yard with all the boys and some pudding pie to end the night. On the menu, these crisp, sticky delicious baked Teriyaki Pineapple Wings!
I am a wing lover! What I don’t love is the mess of frying wings in the house. Baking the wings takes out a lot of the work and just about all the mess. The wings are first tossed lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper. Baked in the oven for about 40-45 minutes flipping the wings over once, halfway through the cooking time to crisp up each side.
The sauce is super easy and I like it because its a little different then asian type wings i’ve had out. A mix of teriyaki sauce, ketchup, crushed pineapple, garlic, brown sugar, crushed red pepper and a little water. Blend everything then simmer until thickened. Once the wings are done baking, toss them in the sauce and a simple garnish of toasted sesame seeds and sliced scallion.
- 2- 3 lbs wings
- a drizzle of olive oil
- salt & pepper
- 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1/2 cup canned crushed pineapple
- 2 garlic cloves
- a pinch of crushed red pepper
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 Tbsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted in a dry pan
- sliced scallions
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Dry off the wings with a paper towel. Toss lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Place the wings on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer.
- Bake for 20 minutes, flip the wings over and bake another 20-25 minutes until cooked through and crisp.
- While the wings are cooking add the teriyaki sauce, ketchup, crushed pineapple, brown sugar, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes and water to a blender and blend until smooth,
- Pour into a saucepan and simmer for about 20 minutes or until slightly thickened.
- Once the wings are cooked and just before serving, toss the wings in the sauce. Garnish with the toasted sesame seeds and sliced scallions.
This recipe looks incredible! Pineapple make such great additions to any recipe.
