We absolutely love wings around here, as clearly demonstrated by this keto sweet buffalo wings recipe and this keto lemon pepper wings recipe.

We also love Japanese food. The homemade keto teriyaki sauce in this recipe combines the two into a delicious keto-friendly alternative to Japanese takeout.

Ever since I began following a ketogenic lifestyle over two years ago, I have been adapting many of my favorite recipes, like these juicy chicken wings, with low carb substitutions.

Keto teriyaki chicken wings:

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 2 Tbsp Swerve brown sugar substitute
  • 10 Tbsp coconut aminos **can sub soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp red wine

1. Place wings on a parchment lined baking sheet.

2. Bake in the oven at 375 F for 10 minutes. While the wings are in the oven, start making your teriyaki sauce.

Note: I like to use coconut aminos and Lakanto sugar-free syrup. You can substitute regular soy sauce or tamari soy sauce for the liquid aminos. However, soy can cause inflammation and is not a strict keto ingredient.

Lakanto is my favorite syrup because it is sweetened with monk fruit, but you can use any sugar-free syrup you like.

3. Mix the water and xanthan gum in a small bowl until well combined.

4. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan, cooking over medium heat, until they come to a boil.

5. Remove from the heat and whisk in xanthan gum.

6. Bring to a boil once more, whisking constantly, until the sauce starts to thicken. 

7. Remove from heat and set aside.

8. Remove wings from the oven and coat in the teriyaki sauce.

 Tips and Tricks:

  • Because cooking time can vary, always use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of your meat to ensure it has reached the recommended temperature.
  • If you don’t have parchment paper, use a little bit of avocado oil, olive oil, or cooking spray on your baking tray to help prevent the wings from sticking.
  • For a quick and easy way to coat your wings, place them all into a large bowl, pour all that delicious sauce over them, and toss everything together.
  • Try this homemade teriyaki sauce with chicken tenders, chicken thighs, or chicken breasts, instead of wings. You could also use it in a teriyaki stir fry.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.

More tips for keto cooking:

  • Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes. Try cauliflower instead of perogies or radishes instead of potatoes.
  • Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats. Sometimes it’s hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet, so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
  • Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
  • Find recipes that you love, like this Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole, Taco Bake, and Hamburger Soup, and use them in your weekly keto diet.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools like this food scale, these measuring cups, and a Kitchen Aid mixer.

Serve these yummy keto teriyaki wings with steamed broccoli, shirataki noodles, or on top of cauliflower rice. You may want to make extras of that low-carb teriyaki sauce too. Once you’ve tasted it, you’re going to want to put it on everything!
