These baked finger-licking spicy Korean chicken wings are super flavorful with authentic Korean spices and even more perfect for game day!


  • 12 lbs chicken wings- wings split, tips discarded
  • Salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Korean red chili paste, Gochujang
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp Korean chili powder (regular chili powder will do if you’re unable to find Korean kind)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and thinly sliced green onion/scallions


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F
  2. Line a large baking sheet with foil or use nonstick cooking spray, or a baking liner.
  3. Season wings with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  4. Place wings, skin side up onto baking sheet and roast for about 40-45 minutes until golden brown, crispy, and cooked-through.
  5. While wings cook, in a small sauce pan, combine remaining ingredients (except sesame seeds and scallions) over medium-low heat on the stove. Mix thoroughly and then turn heat off once sauce begins to boil.
  6. Once wings are done, place them into a bowl and immediately pour sauce onto wings. Stir to fully coat wings.
  7. Garnish wings with sesame seeds and scallions, if desired.
  8. Enjoy!
