Korean Sticky BBQ Wings with Tamarind

These are so moreish....you won't ever have enough of them. Beautiful on the BBQ or in the oven.

You will need:
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang*
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 kg chicken wings, drained and patted dry
  • 3 tablespoons Jenny’s Kitchen Tamarind Chutney
  • Optional garnish: sesame seeds and chopped spring onion

*Gochujang is a fabulous Korean paste with a complex flavour and a small hit of chilli. It is cheap and easily available from supermarkets and food-shops.

To prepare your wings:

1. Mix together light soy sauce, gochujang, sesame oil, salt and black pepper together in a large bowl until combined. Add the chicken wings and stir until evenly coated. Cover and marinade for 1 hour or overnight. Remove from fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
2. Barbecue over medium heat until cooked through.
3. Brush wings with Jenny’s Kitchen Tamarind Chutney and cook wings for 1 minute per side, brushing second side after the flip, until wings just start to caramelise. Do not allow the wings to burn.
4. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with sesame seeds and spring onion.

To bake instead of BBQ:

1. Mix the Chutney with the other marinade ingredients.
2. Line a tray with baking paper
3. Bake at 180 deg until cooked through.
