Spicy & Sweet Korean Garlic Wings 

Savory, Sweet and as spicy as you like. These grilled chicken wings will be the hit of any party.


  • 1½ cups soy sauce
  • ½ cup Korean go chu chang paste or substitute with Cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • ½ cup lemon lime soda like Sprite
  • 2 bunches of green onions cut into bite-size piece (keep some for garnish)
  • 2 TBSP minced garlic
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil
  • 24 chicken wings, cut into drums and flats
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Mix all ingredients, except the chicken, and stir until well-incorporated and uniform.
  2. Submerge wings in marinade, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Best grilled on a charcoal but can be grilled on a gas grill. 
  4. Heat grill to medium/high heat
  5. Remove wings from marinade and use a clean paper towel to pat down and remove any excess marinade. 
  6. Place wings on the grill, skin side down over indirect heat. Rotate and reposition wings on the grill as needed to prevent burning.
  7. Once fully cooked, move wings directly over the coals to add a finishing char for extra flavor and texture.
  8. Garnish with diced green onion and toasted sesame seeds.
