Sweet & Spicy Korean Chicken Wings

Pin It
I often forget about chicken. It's sad, I know. But, when I think of meats to eat, chicken is last on my list. I've recently decided, this has got to change. There are a lot of tasty chicken recipes out there, and I should make chicken more of a priority. Because what else do I have going on? Well... right. Chicken is going to get more action in my kitchen! Starting with wings. I'm only starting with wings because chicken at Whole Foods is pricey, and wings are a good deal. Wings it is.

Since my kitchen is stocked with Korean ingredients, I took that route and went for a sweet and spicy marinade.
I combined honey, pepper paste, pepper flakes, ginger, garlic, scallions, sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil and soy sauce. Then, sesame seeds. I mixed all this goodness together and marinated the wings for a few hours. Then I baked at 400 degrees for about an hour, turning and basting half-way through with the remaining marinade.
You might be thinking, what are the measurements? Am I right? Are you thinking this? Anything? Well, I don't recall. Sometimes weeknight meals happen so fast that I just do. Because the only thing on my mind is, how soon can I eat?

As in most of my Korean marinades, I find that I have to play around with the pepper paste and flakes to get the right spicy flavors. Otherwise, the rest is up to you. Just don't overdo it with the sesame oil.
Wings, salad and cider. That's a Tuesday night.
