Spicy, sweet grilled chicken wings are a must on any party menu. These Japanese-inspired wings are first marinated with a sake, soy sauce, ginger and garlic mixture. Then they’re skewered before grilling for easy cooking and a fun presentation. Sprinkle with Homemade Wasabi Furikake Seasoning for a bold finishing touch.
