  • Baste the wings with the marinade while grilling to keep them moist and flavorful.
  • If you don't have a grill, you can also cook the wings in the oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 25-30 minutes, turning them halfway through.
  • For extra flavor, sprinkle some sesame seeds and chopped green onions on top of the cooked wings before serving.

Storage and Serving

  • Leftover yakitori chicken wings can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • To reheat, place the wings on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
  • Serve the reheated wings as a snack or use them in stir-fries or salads for a quick and tasty meal.
