Recipe:  Korean Fried Chicken Wings

If you are going to cook along with Chef Theresa, please have your ingredients measured out and chopped, if necessary, in advance and all your materials ready!

Ingredients:

For the chicken:

2 pounds DEFROSTED chicken wingettes or drumettes or small pieces of chicken

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Vegetable oil

⅓ cup toasted peanuts

For the sauce and garnish:

½ cup honey

3 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons brown or white sugar

2 teaspoons rice vinegar

2 teaspoons yellow mustard

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon minced peeled ginger

2 small dried red chili peppers or 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds

Preparation:

Oven method: Preheat oven to 425.

Make the chicken: pat dry with paper towel. Mix the chicken pieces, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl.

On a large cookie sheet cover with foil. Coat foil with 1 T vegetable oil and place chicken wings on foil. Bake for aprox. 20 minutes. Until fully cooked 165’ and crisp.

Air fryer method: pat dry with paper towel. Mix the chicken pieces, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Lay in air fryer and on 400’ set timer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes flip over to other side and repeat for 10 minutes.

Make the sauce and serve:

Mix the honey, soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, and mustard in a small bowl.

Heat a large pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add the oil, garlic, ginger, and chili peppers and stir for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the garlic is a little crispy and fragrant. Add the soy sauce mixture and stir. Let it bubble for 2 to 3 minutes, until the mixture is shiny and a little sticky. Remove from the heat if not using right away and reheat until bubbling when ready to finish the chicken.

Add the chicken and peanuts (if using) to the bubbling sauce and toss with a wooden spoon to coat nicely. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds. Transfer to a large plate or platter and serve.
