Baked Korean Gochujang Chicken Wings are finger licking good – sticky, sweet and a little spicy. My love for chicken wings goes back to my college days in upstate New York when I was first introduced to Buffalo chicken wings. I think my husband (boyfriend at the time) and I must have ordered chicken wings as our midnight snack at least several times a week. The hotter the better.
I created this version of Korean chicken wings for my boys. These wings are baked, not fried, so there’s less mess cooking them and they’re a little bit healthier.
The marinade is made with gochujang, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic, onion and ginger. For best flavor, I recommend marinating the wings for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator. Overnight would be even better.
For easier cleanup, I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly oiled it. The wings are laid in a single layer.
Just before they were completely done, I flipped the chicken wings over and turned up the oven to brown them nicely. The marinade thickens during the baking process and makes a wonderful glaze for these chicken wings.
