Korean Chicken Wings


Looking for something a little different this weekend? Try these Korean chicken wings and you won’t be disappointed. Sticky, spicy chicken wings that will leave you wanting more.

The special ingredient that makes these wings so delicious is a Korean spice paste called Gochujang. The spicy yet sweet flavour is unbelievable and transforms these wings to another level. You can find this paste in most supermarkets, I bought mine from Sainsbury’s (link here).

I tried to make these wings the easiest way I knew how. I didn’t want anything complicated that took a long time, nor did I want to be standing at the stove frying wings for ages. Therefore I made them in the oven and they tasted great. Plus it’s a bit healthier! I have fried wings before and I just couldn’t face it this time.

I marinated the wings the night before just to get as much flavour into them as possible. I whacked them in the oven and once crispy, I coated them in a glaze and put them back in the oven to get sticky and golden. Absolutely delicious! They are great to make for friends at a dinner party, as long as you have lots of napkins around! Give them a go this weekend, you won’t be disappointed.

500g whole chicken wings (cut into winglets)

1. Put the chicken wings in a large bowl and add all of the marinade ingredients and mix. Cover and leave in the fridge over night or at least an hour.
2. When ready to bake, place the wings on a wire rack with a tray underneath. Bake for 30 minutes at 200c or until cooked through.
3. Mix the ingredients for the glaze in a small bowl and brush over the wings. Place them back in the oven for 5-7 minutes until sticky and golden.
