What happens when you take a traditional Teriyaki sauce and mix in one of Kentucky's specialties? Well you get Kentuckyaki that's what. Lost in enthusiasm and excitement our customers scoop this up for themselves or as a gift, but we later find out that for some the bottle remains in their pantry unopened. Well to help fix this minor problem Chef Karen has come up with this simple and forgiving recipe to get you started. Enjoy and let us know what you think.

You could make these “Kentuckyaki Fire Wings” just add 2 tablespoons Sambal to the glaze. That will over power the delicate balance of teriyaki to spice, but they always say you only live once.
