Ingredients
  

spicy Korean bbq sauce

  • ¼ cup gochugang (Korean Chile Paste)
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons peeled and minced ginger
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 ½ tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

honey-soy sauce

  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 ½ tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons peeled and minced ginger

classic buffalo wing sauce

  • ¾ cup Franks red hot sauce
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

garnish

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

wings

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 24 chicken wing pieces
  • 1 cup sweet rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 ¼ cup cold water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • vegetable oil for frying

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oil to 350°F.
  • For the spicy Korean bbq sauce: Place all ingredients into a bowl and whisk together until fully incorporated. Set aside.
  • For the honey-soy sauce: Place all ingredients into a bowl and whisk together until fully incorporated. Set aside.
  • For the classic buffalo wing sauce: Place Franks and melted butter into a bowl and stir together. Set aside.
  • Sift together the flour and cornstarch into a mixing bowl. Whisk in water until fully incorporated and no lumps remain.
  • Dip each wing into the batter and shake to remove any excess. Carefully drop each battered wing into the hot oil and fry for 5 to 6 minutes (this will have to be done in batches).
  • Drain onto paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Once all wings have been fried, place wings back into the fryer and fry a second time (double fry) for 5 to 7 minutes or until light golden brown and crispy. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  • Using a pastry brush, paint each wing with a small amount of the spicy bbq sauce or honey-soy sauce and garnish with the green onions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
  • **If using the classic wing sauce, place wings into the bowl with the Franks and butter and toss together until fully coated. Serve immediately.
