Teriyaki Turkey Wings

Turkey wings slow cooked in a flavorful sauce bake up sweet, sticky and delicious!  Turkey wings are an inexpensive cut of meat and this is one of may favorite ways to cook them. Let me show you the simple steps to make this tasty treat. This is another recipe stolen um I mean adapted from my parents so thanks Mom and Dad!

First, cut up the wings

Cut the turkey wings into sections. My parents gave me this batch of turkey wings on our last visit to South Carolina and I’ve kept them in my freezer for a while. After thawing them in the refrigerator I rinsed and pat them dry. Using a chefs knife I separated the wing at the joint. These wings came with the tips removed (kind of a bummer because the wing tips are my favorite part!) normally I would just leave the tips attached and separate the drummet part.

Next, make your sauce

In a roasting pan, mix the soy sauce with brown sugar, pepper, apple cider vinegar, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes together. Place the turkey wings in the roasting pan in one layer.

BAKE

Cover the roasting pan with foil and bake low and slow. Turn the wings over half way through cooking so both sides get nice and saucy. After a couple of hours remove the foil and crank up the heat. The sauce will reduce to a sweet/salty/stick glaze. Turn the wings in the sauce a few times during the high heat faze to get them all coated.

Spoon the sauce over some rice and serve the Teriyaki Turkey Wings with a side of green beans. That’s just a suggestion, you can serve them any way you want, I won’t judge.
