*You may use any type chili sauce, with the understanding that each has a different flavor. My favorite is gojuchang.


3 pounds chicken wings

1/3 cup gochujang sauce, sambal oelek, sriracha (add an extra tablespoon honey OR 2 tablespoons miso) or harissa (omit the sesame seed oil and sesame seeds)

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon sesame seed oil

2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger

2 large cloves garlic, chopped

1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 large scallion, chopped, for garnish

white sesame seeds for garnish


Preheat an outdoor grill or oven broiler. Wash and dry the wings and separate the parts In a large bowl, combine the Gojuchang, soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, ginger and garlic and mix the ingredients to blend them thoroughly. Set aside. Pour the vegetable oil over the wing parts and toss to coat all the pieces. Turn the grill heat to medium. Grill the wings, turning once, for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Brush the wings with some of the sauce, and cook for about 12-15 minutes, brushing with more of the sauce, until the wings are crispy and fully cooked. Sprinkle with the scallion and white sesame seeds.

If you don’t have a grill: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Eliminate the vegetable oil. Place the wings in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Pour the sauce over the chicken and toss to coat the pieces evenly. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Turn the wings over and bake for another 12-15 minutes or until the wings are crispy.
