These Korean oven-roasted chicken wings are good for almost any occasion. They are good as an appetizer or a main dish, as a drinking snack (anju), as a casual meal or part of a picnic, and as part of a large celebratory dinner. Tongdak chicken wings are juicy, spicy, and sweet, and it's impossible to just eat one.


  • 2 pounds chicken wings and drumettes
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 6 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 1 Tbsp red pepper paste (kochujang)


  1. Mix all ingredients together for the sauce (everything but the chicken).
  2. Marinate chicken for at least an hour in the sauce (a few hours is better).
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  4. In a heated pan on the stove, brown the chicken on all sides, reserving the marinade for later.
  5. Transfer chicken wings and drumsticks to a shallow roasting pan, pouring sauce over pieces.
  6. Put chicken into preheated oven.
  7. Turn once during cooking, covering with more sauce if needed.
  8. Cook chicken for a total of 40-50 minutes in the oven.

Awesome & Simple, Member Purr10

This recipe is awesome and simple to make. But you'll need Red Chili paste. I used what I had on hand so I substituted the Korean condiment of Kochujang which is type of Red pepper paste for; Indonesian red chili paste called; Sambal Bajak. Sambal you can readily find in Asian stores and in some large grocery stores. I'm assuming you could probably find the Korean style red chili in an Asian store as well. BTW; Sambal is inexpensive. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Making it again tonight, and paring it with some white rice. Num!
