September 19, 2010

Author Notes: I originally posted this video ( on YouTube in Jan 2008 and with nearly 52,000 views, it is my most popular recipe on YouTube so far. I have experimented with it a bit more since then and this is my updated version. Chuncheon is the provincial capital of Korea's Gangwon province and it's known for their spicy chicken dish called dakkalbi. I used the dakkalbi marinade to give these chicken wings a Korean flair.

Dakkalbi marinade

  1. Place all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well until they are completely combined.

Making the wings

  1. After mixing the marinade, place the marinade and the chicken wings in a gallon sized freezer bag and allow to marinade for at least 1/2 hour but overnight is even better.
  2. Place the wings in a 350 and bake them in your oven for 20-25 minutes on each side until they are well done.
  3. I serve them with a small cup of either bleu cheese or ranch dressing and celery sticks on the side.
