We are on the cusp of football season and you know what that means – tailgate party time! Polynesian chicken wings are full of flavor, are easy to keep warm and make delicious game day food. Plus, who doesn’t love a good wing recipe?
I found a version of this recipe in an old cookbook of mine. The sauce ingredients weren’t really what suited our tastes so I set out to alter them. ]
At first I had called them Hawaiian chicken wings but after we tasted them we decided the flavors were more Polynesian.
I made them for my husband and me, although my son did taste one and wished he had a plate full. Next time, because there will be a next time they were so yummy! It’s also an easy recipe to increase the number of servings and double the sauce ingredients.
If you’re serving them for game day at home, keep them warm in a slow cooker with some extra sauce in it.
Pineapple juice is something we always have in the house. My oldest son loves to drink it and I like it in mixed drinks. Since I’ve also been trying to recreate some of our favorite Chinese take-out meals, I now always have teriyaki on hand. The combination seemed like a match made in heaven and, honestly, it did not disappoint.
Polynesian Chicken Wings
Polynesian chicken wings are full of flavor and are delicious for a tailgate party.
- 20 chicken wings, separated into wing and drumette
- 6 ounces pineapple juice
- ¼ cup teriyaki marinade and sauce
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place wings in single layer on baking sheet. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a saucepan combine pineapple juice, teriyaki sauce, honey, brown sugar and garlic. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
- Remove marinade from heat and spoon sauce over each wing, reserving some for later.
- Bake wings in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and turn each wing over. Spoon remaining sauce over wings. Return to oven to back for about 25 - 30 more minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F and juices are clear.
Yum, yes game day food and I do love a good wings recipe. Thanks for sharing. I will add them to my ‘to cook’ list. Delicious!

These look delicious! Who doesn’t adore wings? I have a Hawaiian fried rice recipe (I haven’t posted yet) which would go great with these. That, macaroni salad and bbq pulled pork would make a nice luau type tailgate!
