These turned out really well, but my Japanese-Canadian bf asked “what’s Japanese about this recipe?” Not too much, but these were good nonetheless. I did a couple of changes to the recipe. To make it a bit more “Asian” I substituted ¼ cup of the white vinegar for rice wine vinegar. I also added about a tablespoon of sesame oil. I only used ¾ a cup of sugar, but next time I would only add ½ a cup, as it was a tiny bit sweet for my taste. I used low sodium soy sauce and completely left out the salt. As for the cooking time, I listened to other reviewers and decided to bake them instead of frying. I coated them in flour and sprayed them with Pam. I baked them for about 45 minutes at 425, turning them over every 15 minutes. I then set it to high heat broil, and added the sauce. I broiled them for about 12 minutes, turning them over and basting the wings every 4 minutes. Not exactly Japanese, but it’s a great “Asian inspired” recipe!
