Chicken wings are marinated in a teriyaki-pineapple mixture that's seasoned with ginger, garlic and tamarind paste, then sprinkled with orange gelatin, and baked.

  • Servings: 10


1 cup Lite Teriyaki Sauce
1 cup Pineapple Juice
1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 tsp Grated Fresh Ginger
1 tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper, or to taste
¼ tsp Tamarind Paste
3½ lb Chicken Wings, tips discarded
½ pkg (3-oz Size) Orange Gelatin, as needed
Sesame Seeds


Using a large bowl, combine teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and tamarind paste. Add chicken wings, mixing well; marinate about 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 350. Line a shallow-rimmed baking pan with foil. Arrange chicken wings in a single layer. Pour about 1/2 cup of the marinade over wings and sprinkle with some of the (dry) orange gelatin. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, turn wings and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 package of gelatin and sesame seeds. Bake until browned and wings are done, about 25 minutes more.

Helpful Tips:

Not your ordinary chicken wings! These sweet, spicy and savory wings are always welcome for any game day treat. The tamarind paste adds a wonderful tart taste which is indigenous to many Oriental and Caribbean foods. For a hungry crowd, the recipe is easily doubled. Recipe variation: use lime or pineapple-flavored gelatin.
