About this Recipe

These sweet and spicy wings make the perfect appetizer or party snack. The defining Korean flavor in these wings comes from the ingredient gochujang, a Korean fermented soy and chile paste, which can be found at any Asian supermarket, and most major grocery stores or online retailers. The wings are first coated with baking powder and salt mixture which gives the wings the same crispy texture as a deep-fried chicken wing. The longer the baking powder and salt mixture sits on the wings in the refrigerator, the more the skin will dry out and the crispier the wings will become. For spicier wings, add an additional tablespoon of gochujang when making the sauce.
