This is one fingers licking good chicken! Spicy, sweet and sticky, it will beg you to have more. Very suitable for any party that you are throwing or bring it to a potluck party. I believe it would be a hit! I took a short-cut on this as I had some leftover fried chicken wings and drumettes. If you don't have the leftover store-bought fried chicken wings, just make your own. Marinate the wings and drumettes with salt and pepper. Coat it with corn starch or corn flour and deep-fry in hot oil until cook.
As for the sauce, if you like it spicier, you are welcome to add the Korean red pepper powder or substitute it with cayenne pepper powder. That would be an extra kick for you!
- 10 leftover deep-fried chicken wings and drumettes
- 2 Tbsp. Gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste)
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1 Tbsp. mirin
- 1 tsp. pure sesame oil
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. minced ginger
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. chopped scallion (separate, reserve 1/2 Tbsp. for garnishing)
1. In a bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients together. Set aside.
2. In a wok, heat up a little oil. Pan-fry the leftover fried wings and drumettes until hot and crispy. If you don't have the leftover fried wings, just deep-fry wings and drumettes from scratch. Add in the mixed sauce and stir quickly to coat evenly.
3. Dish out on a plate and garnish with the remaining scallion. Serve hot!
