These addictive wings, inspired by Korean fried chicken, are marinated, fried and then tossed with a sweet and spicy glaze made with KimKim Hot Sauce, honey and fresh lime juice. A sprinkle of sesame seeds finishes off these totally irresistible bites.
For the marinade: In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, garlic, ginger and lime zest. Add the chicken wings and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to overnight
For the glaze: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, remove from the heat and whisk in the honey, KimKim Korean Hot Sauce and lime juice until emulsified. Set aside.
To cook: Spread the cornstarch in a shallow baking dish. Remove the chicken wings from the marinade and pat dry with a paper towel. Dredge the chicken wings in cornstarch, shake off any excess and place on a baking sheet.
In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 2 inches of oil to 350°F. Fry chicken wings in batches until golden brown on each side and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel-lined sheet.
In a large bowl, toss the fried wings with the reserved glaze. Place the wings on a large serving platter and garnish with green onions and a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds. Serve hot along with ice cold beer.
