  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.

  2. Toss the chicken wings into the flour mixture until well coated.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, gochujang, soy sauce, honey, and rice vinegar.

  4. Dip each flour-coated chicken wing into the gochujang mixture to coat it well, then place it back into the flour mixture to double coat.

  8. In a separate saucepan, heat the remaining gochujang mixture until warm.

  9. Toss the fried chicken wings in the warmed gochujang sauce until evenly coated.

  10. Serve the spicy Korean fried chicken hot, garnished with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
