Cooking for 4 people


  • 3 lb. chicken wings, separated into wings and drumettes
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • ground black pepper, to taste


  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch ginger, freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 0.25 cup Gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • 0.25 cup mirin
  • 0.25 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. honey

To serve

  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced, green parts only

1 Food Prep

First, mix together your sauce ingredients in a small mixing bowl until well combined. Next, separate the chicken wings into wings and drumettes.

Finally, toss the separated chicken wings in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets

Method: Two-Zone Method

Temp: 350°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place the wings on the cool side of the grill and close the lid.
  • Turn the wings occasionally until they’re cooked through and reach an internal temperature of 175ºF, about 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Remove the wings from the grill and toss them in the sauce to evenly coat. 
  • Remove the wings from the sauce and place them on the hot part of the grill.
  • Cook, turning often, for about 5 more minutes until the wings are glazed and browned.

  • Remove from the grill and garnish with sliced scallions. Serve immediately, with extra sauce if desired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! Who doesn't love wings, these Korean style spicy wings were delicious! Easy to prepare. Cooks while you prepare your side salad and serve up the potato salad, Yes, messy, but it is wings! Eaten with fingers and lots of napkins and paper towels. It can be made mild or very spicy, everyone had no seconds but plenty of thirds the chef was kept very busy. . . We were so sure we would run out, but we had plenty of other bar be cued foods it was a great feast for Father's day..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Tasty! I followed the directions almost exactly. I only had chicken legs, so I use them instead of the wings & drumlets. The cooking time was spot on. The sauce was absolutely tasty! I sipped a tad bit of it & I loved it! I had to keep myself from just sipping it all. I definitely recommend this recipe & will be making it again & again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Korean Wings! Made this recipe last night and both my Korean wife and I enjoyed them. Wings turned out tender, juicy, and had a great flavor. We thought the sauce might have been sweet, and we prefer spicy, so I added some habanero's to it. Other than that, stuck to the recipe as written.
