    Korean Chicken Wings

    To make Korean Chicken Wings, you will need the following ingredients:

    Steps to make Korean Chicken Wings


    Combine chicken coating


    In a medium bowl, whisk ½ cup of flour, ½ cup of cornstarch and season with a bit of salt and pepper.


    Coat chicken


    Dip each chicken piece from 1½ lb chicken into the prepared mixture and make sure to coat evenly, all over.


    Heat oil


    In a large deep skillet, over medium heat, pour 1½-inches of vegetable oil and bring the temperature of the oil to 350 °F and shimmering.


    Cook chicken


    Working in batches, carefully add about 3-4 chicken pieces to the hot oil and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side until cooked in the center golden brown on the outside. Once cooked, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and repeat with remaining chicken pieces.


    Prepare sauce


    In a mixing bowl, whisk ¼ cup ketchup, ¼ cup sriracha, 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice together and combine until smooth.


    Add chicken to sauce


    Toss cooked and drained chicken pieces in the prepared sauce to coat well.



    Garnish with sprinkles of sesame seeds for the Korean touch and serve hot, warm or at room temperature, if you wish!

    Didn't use so much honey as listed instead put only one tablespoon cause 2 was already sounding far to sweet for me but these were great nonetheless.

    WOW these were really tasty, not so much spicy I actually found them kinda sweet compared to most spicy Asian foods I've had.


    Great and simple recipe from Korea also affordable which is why it's now my favorite.

    The BOMB!! These are the most amazing chicken wings I've ever had so I think I'm moving to Korea just for the food haha.

    Zesty yet sweet which is what I was expecting so I totally loved it!

    Chicken wings were a bit dry so not a fan as much as I liked the pickleback ones they tasted a lil' better to me, but my husband loved these so I guess I'll be making them again.

    Takes quite a long time to make these and they are kinda hard to perfect, hopefully I'll get them just right the next time around though.

    Didn't think i'd manage to make something that isn't American and have it turn out good but got lucky with this recipe!

    Made these with a side of cheesy garlic bread then had some cherry cheesecake for desert with red wine.

    Delia Purpera

    Perfect with some sweet or plain mashed potatoes with pickles.

    Me and my husband decided to try something new out and we went with these bad boys, they were absolutely mouthwatering delicious!

    Does anyone know where to buy sriracha sauce? :( I couldn't find it in my local tesco, recommendations?

    Tamia Wead

    Brought them to work as leftovers and ate them cold, have to say they were still really flavorful and yummy even though they weren't warmed up.

    I poured soy sauce on the top of these and they came out really well, I'd actually say even tastier with the soy sauce on the top.

    Addilynn Bushko

    I squeezed some lime juice instead of lemon on the top of these and had them with sticky white rice, brilliant recipe.

    Loved these Korean chicken wings more than any American styled ones, they are both sweet and savory which is exactly what I was looking for :)

    Angelique Lien

    Satisfied stomach, statisfied life! can't get over this traditional Korean chicken wing recipe.

    Zoie Heighes

    I used sunflower oil instead and also replaced the salt with himalayan salt instead.

    Elia Minyard

    Never knew that adding honey to a chicken recipe could turn out this good, super happy with it.


    I love it! So delicious!
