These spicy, addictive chicken wings are made with my favourite Korean ingredient, Gochujang red chili paste. Seared without oil, then cooked in beer and topped with sesame seeds, these are a hit as a starter at any gathering!




  1. Heat the nonstick pan on high heat.
  2. Wash, dry, and add the chicken wings in a non-stick pan without oil, moving often until they are golden brown and crisp on the sides for about 7-8 minutes.
  3. Add garlic, brown sugar, and beer and raise heat to high.
  4. When liquid starts to boil add chili powder, sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegar, black pepper, red chili pepper paste, and salt.
  5. Let the sauce boil and thicken for about 8-10 minutes until wings are well coated with sauce.
  6. Top with sesame seeds.


Critical Ingredients:

Korean Gochujang paste has a unique flavor. But if it’s not available, use any Asian red chili paste.  No sesame seeds or allergic to them, leave them out! You can use maple syrup or honey instead of brown sugar, or just regular old white sugar.

Spicy Korean Chicken Wings – tastes great
