              <i>Nagoya</i> Chicken Wings Step 1

Prepare the sauce. In a saucepan, combine all ingredients for sauce. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

              <i>Nagoya</i> Chicken Wings Step 2

Rinse chicken wings under cold water, if desired. Pat dry wings with paper towels, and pierce the skin with a fork. 

Pre-cook the wings in a microwave for tenderized meat and a shorter cooking time. Place wings in a microwaveable bowl and cover with a plastic wrap. Heat in the microwave at high (1200 w) for 3 minutes. Mix the wings and microwave for an additional 4 minutes to ensure even heating.

Using paper towels, pat dry the wings well. Pour vegetable oil over and toss to coat entirely. Arrange wings skin side up, in a single layer on a pan.  Lightly dust the top with flour.

Preheat the Indoor Electric Grill at HI for 6 minutes or until the operation light turns off. Arrange all wings on the grill, dusted-side up, and lower heat to medium-high (between MED and HI). Please be careful of the heated grill.
