Substitute for cilantro??

Diane in Bexley | May 1, 2006 12:05 PM

We are giving a large graduation party in June and I am sarting to get organized. Ran across the following Teriyaki chicken wing recipe and seems like it would be a hit with both teens and adults. Problem - family member is deathly allergic to cilantro, any ideas for substitutions, will parsley work? I need to make 100 pieces, can I just multiply 3 times as long as I bake in single layers? Game plan is to put into several crock pots on low to keep warm during party Thanks!

Teriyaki Sauce:
1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 cup grapefruit juice
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 fresh red chiles, halved
5 garlic cloves, halved
2-inch piece fresh ginger, whacked open with the flat side of a knife
Chicken Wings:
2 dozen chicken wings, about 31/4 pounds, rinsed and patted dry
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted, for garnish
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish

Prepare the teriyaki sauce by combining the soy sauce, grapefruit juice, hoisin sauce, ketchup, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, chiles, garlic, and ginger in a pot. Bring to a slow boil and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Season the chicken wings generously with salt and pepper. Lay the chicken wings in a single layer on a sheet pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the skin gets crispy. With tongs, dip the wings in the teriyaki sauce and return to the oven for 10 to 15 minutes to glaze. An impressive presentation is to serve these chicken wings family style; arrange them on a large platter, pour the remaining sauce over them and sprinkle with sesame seeds and cilantro.
