Korean Chicken Wings

Recipe Description:

Before the war, chicken was a delicacy in Korea, stewed with gentle aromatics like ginseng for special occasions. But starting in the 1960s, chicken came to symbolise post-war abundance and stability— the latter is perhaps ironic, given that it’s typically served as an anju (drinking food) and nicknamed chimaek (‘chicken with beer’). Many chicken hofs (pubs) deep-fry their wings, but for a less hectic weeknight dinner we recommend roasting! There are plenty of variations on Korean chicken, from lightly battered to rotisserie-roasted, but this sticky, spicy yangnyeom glaze is our favourite way to grapple with these iconic crispy wings.
