Sweet Korean Chicken Wings

All opinions and views expressed on this blog are my own, not that of the NFL and/or any of its 32 teams. Any team names, logos or other symbols referenced are properties of their respective organizations. The bloggers I’m working with for this series are just big fans — and we want to share our love for our teams, the game and the food that brings us all together on game day. Ready. Set. HIKE!

With the official start of football season around the corner (next week!), it’s time to bring on the tailgating recipes!

To kick off the season, I’ve joined a group of bloggers from all over the country — all of whom are big football fans! — to bring you 64 tailgating recipe ideas for a terrific football party.

Check out the awesome round-up at the end of this post to see all their recipes! 

All 64 of us picked a team to cheer on this season and we’ll be posting recipes a few times throughout the football season related to our team, but mostly, just to give everyone good party food ideas! Personally, I was a bit late to the party so I didn’t get my #1 team choice (Broncos) or my #2 team choice (Washington Professional Football Team), so I went with the team that I have the closest affiliation to: PITTSBURGH STEELERS!

Betsy went to high school in PA and her family has always been a Steelers family, so I’m happy to represent the black and gold for this football season!

Ingredients

3 pounds chicken wings
2 tablespoons neutral oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Print Recipe  

Directions

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss chicken wings with oil, salt, and pepper and spread out evenly on a baking sheet. Bake chicken wings for 50 minutes until they are golden brown.

2) Meanwhile stir together sauce ingredients.

3) When chicken wings are done, toss wings with half of the sweet Korean chili sauce. Return to sheet pan and spread out. Turn oven up to 400 degrees F. and bake for another 10-15 minutes until they are caramelized.

4) Remove wings and toss with the rest of the sauce. Serve wings with minced scallions and any sauces you might like, although they are good without any dipping sauce.

These wings are really simple to make. Most importantly, no need to bust out the fryer for them. They are best baked so the sauce can caramelize on the wings.

To start the wings, you want to actually cook them without the sauce on them. So just toss them with some neutral oil, salt, and pepper.

Wangs!

Bake the wings at 375 degrees F. for about 50 minutes on a baking sheet.

While the wings are baking, let’s talk sauce!

This stuff is the magic stuff you’ll need for this Korean sauce.

Special sauce.

Mix that together with some soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, fresh ginger, brown sugar, and sesame oil.

This is magical stuff. It hits all the key flavor notes!

I love this sauce.

When your wings are done baking, they should have lots of crispy bits on them. This is a good thing.

Baked!

The Double Toss Method

This is how to make these wings really special. When they are done baking, toss them with half of the sweet Korean sauce. Boom.

First toss.

Then crank the oven up to 400 degrees F. and spread them out on the baking sheet. Bake them a second time for 10-15 minutes. This will really caramelize the sauce on the wings!

Crispy.

Then toss them a second time with the last half of the sauce.

It’s the perfect chicken wing method for a sticky sauce like this! So delicious.

Second toss!

Second toss!

You could serve these sweet Korean chicken wings with blue cheese or ranch, but honestly I don’t think they need any sauce. They are great just like this, with maybe some fresh scallions on them.

Be the tailgating hero with these bad boys!

  1. Pittsburg–really?!! Just kidding. I am sad little Browns fan, so I had to give you some beef :)
    And these wings–I am so in love with the sweet and spicy combo! Fabulous!

  2. These look SO good! I’ve been wanting to try gochujang and this seems like the perfect way to try it!

  3. You had me at Korean! I love baking wings and these sound like they would hit the spot on game day. I am really going to have to hunt for that gochujang sauce – sounds like just what I’ve been looking for.

  4. Thanks for all your great postings! I’m finding not only great recipes here, but in addition, some helpful hints. I’m 72 and still learning:) Keep laughing and cooking to your little heart’s desire :)…
