Spicy Korean Inspired Wings

Let’s talk about these Air Fried Spicy Korean Wings. Instead of deep-frying the wings, I use my trusty air-fryer to get a nice crisp on the wings. Cooking them once already crisps it up, but I double cook them for an even bigger crunch! After cooking, I toss the wings in a sauce that is so good you’ll be licking the remaining sauce off your fingers!



These wings are a great appetizer if you’re getting together with family and friends. Whether you’re getting together and catching up or sitting down and watching a game. Wings + game + good company = unbeatable combination!



I love the complex flavors of what Korean cuisine has to offer. The great part about this recipe is that if you aren’t a huge fan of spice, you can add less and adjust to your own preference. The sesame seeds and green onion garnish are also optional if you aren’t into that, but I would give it a chance. This recipe is so good, you will want to make these wings over and over!


Let me know down in the comments if you try this recipe out! There are so many flavors for wings. I want to hear what your favorite is! There are a million different combinations and I know everyone is different! I’d love to hear about what you guys like and don’t like!



Ciao for now!

Notes For Cooking


I used my air fryer instead of deep frying in oil. If you prefer to deep fry your wings, you can still do so. :)


If you are not good with spice, you don’t have to use the full recommendation for the gochujang. You can also add more spice and adjust if you need to as well! :)


While the wings are cooking, shake the basket every 10 minutes. When I first tested this recipe out for the first time, I did not shake the basket and the wings ended up sticking to the basket and ripping parts of the skin off when removing.


Other Recipes


Passion Iced Tea with Lemonade – If you want something nice and refreshing to wash the wings down with, this lemonade will work nicely with it! Super good and super refreshing!

Cost Analysis


Lastly, take a look at this cost analysis. It shows how much it costs to make these spicy Korean wings. We don’t realize it, but sometimes it so much cheaper to make things at home versus buying them at the store! Yes, sometimes it takes a while and sometimes it’s more convenient, but how can you deny that price?
