  • 3 lbs. chicken wings
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup ginger thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Korean chili flakes
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • peanut oil for frying


  • In a small saucepan, combine water, ginger, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and chili flakes. Bring to a boil.  Add honey and cook until reduced by half, about 20-25 minutes.  When it cools a little, it should be the consistency of maple syrup.
  • In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt and pepper.  Lightly dredge the chicken pieces in the flour and shake off excess flour.
  • Heat enough oil for deep frying in a deep pot or wok to 350 F.  Fry for 5 minutes.  Let cool for 5 minutes and remove any grit/excess flour.
  • Drain the oil if necessary.  If you shook off the excess flour, it should not be necessary to drain the oil. Reheat oil and refry the chicken wings 10 minutes, until crispy and golden.
  • To serve, toss chicken with sauce and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
