Mealthy tip:

Make these chicken wings gluten free by using a wheat free soy sauce, such as tamari.

This recipe can be made with reduced sodium soy sauce if you want less sodium but still the flavor of soy sauce in the teriyaki.

I made this recipe using the gluten free substitute, tamari, for some friends that came over. We all loved the way it turned out. The air fryer is one of my favorite ways to make wings, and the sauce is really full of flavor. We topped it with toasted sesame seeds and served it egg rolls.

I wanted to cheat and use a bottle of teriyaki sauce but I'm so glad I didn't! I had all the ingredients on hand and it was super simple and easy to prepare. I doubled the batch and served them for some friends that came over. Finger licking good...
