From My Kitchen: Korean Wings

This Christmas was somewhat unusual. We usually go out to dinner on Christmas Eve, then I cook brunch and then dinner on Christmas Day. My children and I are always trying to make it as festive as possible, but this year everything was topsy turvy with the Coronavirus looming on every corner. So I cooked for my family on Christmas Eve instead, and then Christmas Day I made some Korean wings, just for my daughter and myself. It was an unusual holiday, but not only did me make it work, we actually had a great time. My Christmas gift to you is the recipe for these amazing wings, you will love them!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds chicken wings and/or drumsticks
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, minced
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp gochujang sauce
  • sesame seeds and/or chopped green onion for garnish

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking dish with parchment paper, or spray with cooking spray. Line up the chicken wings, and bake for 50 minutes, turning them half way though.

In the meantime, heat the oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for about 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, and cook on low heat for 8-10 minutes. Once the wings are done, add them to the skillet, and cover them in the sauce over high heat for about one minute. Garnish with sesame seeds and/or chopped green onions. Easy breezy.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
