Teriyaki Sauce (my version) & Glazed Chicken Wings


It was 10:00 AM Dec 31st 2011, was sipping some excellent coffee that was bought from a local roaster in Coorg(India). Did not have any plans for new years eve and did not want to go out as the weather forecast was not the best for a night out.

So, I though maybe having some of our friends over for the evening. Dialed my buddies and found out that they did not have any plans either so we decide to meet at my place for the evening.

Whipped up a quick menu for the evening, from this menu I want to share with you my version of the Teriyaki Sauce for glazing Chicken wings that I like to serve along with drinks.

So here you go
