Servings: 4

Difficulty: Easy

Prep Time:  10 minutes   |   Cook Time: 35 minutes   |   Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients: 

  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 1/3 cup gochujang paste
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • Toasted white sesame seeds, for garnish

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and then place an oven-safe wire rack on top. Place the chicken wings on the wire rack in an even layer, making sure that they do not touch. If you don’t have a wire rack, simply bake the chicken wings directly on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Place the tray of chicken wings in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Next, make the sauce. Add the hot water, gochujang, honey and soy sauce to a mixing bowl. Whisk everything together until combined and smooth.

Remove the chicken wings from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees F.

Flip the chicken wings over and brush the top of each wing generously with the gochujang sauce. Place it back in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, remove the chicken wings from the oven, flip them over, and brush the gochujang sauce on the other side of the wings.

Place the chicken wings back in the oven and bake for another 10 minutes.

Once the chicken wings are cooked, remove them from the oven and garnish them with scallions and sesame seeds.

Serve warm and enjoy!
