  • 1 lb chicken wings or drumettes
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cornstarch, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, and baking powder.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the water and egg.
  3. Dip the chicken wings or drumettes in the egg mixture, then coat them in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  4. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot (around 350-375°F), carefully add the chicken wings or drumettes in batches and fry for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
  5. While the chicken is frying, make the sauce. In a small saucepan, combine the gochujang, honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens and becomes glossy, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a paper towel-lined plate to drain off any excess oil. Toss the fried chicken in the sauce until it’s evenly coated, then top with thinly sliced green onion.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy!
