From the Japanese Kitchen: Thanksgiving Tebasaki Chicken Wings

Actually, we Japanese are not familiar with Thanksgiving customs. We know that people have turkey dishes (usually the whole bird?) for Thanksgiving, but Japanese people don’t eat turkey very often (especially the whole one ^^;)

So today, I would like to introduce a Japanese style Thanksgiving “chicken” recipe from “Cooking with DOG”. It’s much easier than preparing the whole turkey. Some people might say, “Oh no, that’s wrong!”, but the recipe itself is quite good. So please give it a try 😛
