1 lb chicken wings

1 tbsp oil

3 tbsp corn starch

1 tbsp ketchup

1 tbsp gochujang (see note)

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp brown sugar

½ tbsp soy sauce

½ tbsp toasted sesame oil

½ tbsp ginger (grated)

2 cloves garlic (crushed)


Coat the chicken with the oil, then season with salt and pepper. Toss with corn starch.

Spray the air fryer basket with oil or use a paper towel to wipe a thin coat of oil onto it. Arrange the chicken in a single layer and air fry the chicken at 400ºF for 15 minutes.

While the chicken is air frying, combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until it comes to a brief boil. Remove from heat and set aside.

When the 15 minutes is up, flip the chicken and air fry another 5 minutes, then transfer the chicken onto a plate or rack to cool for 5 minutes.

After the chicken has cooled, spray the chicken with a very light coating of oil (optional), place the chicken back in the air fryer and fry another 5 minutes at 400ºF.

Toss in the sauce, making sure to get every nook and cranny. Enjoy immediately with wedges of lime and slices of green onion.
