It’s Fall and it’s also game day season and I bet you all would love to have some sticky, spicy Korean chicken wings coated with the addictive Korean red pepper paste, or gochujang.
I am a huge fan of gochujang as I love fiery foods; the chili paste always makes everything so much better. Plus, who doesn’t love Korean food?
There is no need to deep-fry the wings in this spicy Korean chicken wings recipe. In fact, the active time of this recipe is only 10 minutes and the oven does all the work.
First you season the chicken wings with salt and pepper, then you bake them. While the oven is doing its magic, you mix together the sauce.
When the wings are all nice and crispy, toss them with the sauce, and you have the most amazing and delicious chicken wings appetizer that everyone loves.
This recipe is adapted from Food and Wine and the original name of these wings is Chicken Wings with Angry Sauce.
It’s aptly named as the they are reddish in appearance and spicy. Make a big batch of the wings when you are watching your games. Invite your friends over and hve some wings and beer. Enjoy!
