Ingredients

Directions

  1. Remove the frozen spicy Korean Gochujang Sauce from the freezer the night before and defrost in the fridge.

  2. Place the chicken wings into a large bowl, drizzle with oil, season with salt and cracked black pepper and tumble to evenly coat. Spread the wings onto a flat baking tray and pop them into the oven at 180°C for 45 – 50 minutes until golden brown.

  3. Check that the wings are cooked by piercing the skin and ensuring that the cooking juices run clear.

  4. Empty the Korean Gochujang Sauce into a large pan big enough to hold the cooked chicken wings as well. Heat the sauce until hot and bubbling, then add the cooked chicken wings, moving the wings in the pan so they all get coated with the sauce.

  5. Place them onto your serving plate of choice, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, sliced spring onion and enjoy!

Recipe Note

Chef's Tips

These wings have simply been seasoned with salt and pepper, but you could always marinade the wings with other herbs and spices. You could grate fresh ginger and garlic, mix with honey, rub around the wings and then cook in the oven.

Alternatively, these wings could be cooked on the barbeque, coated with the spicy Korean Gochujang Sauce and pushed to the back of the barbeque until caramelised.
