But let’s say that’s a story for another day. So you might be wondering what these baked Korean chicken wings are about? About My Baked Korean Chicken Wings This is my very old recipe from 2006, revived in a better form in many ways. They are finger-licking worthy! Initially, chicken wings are marinated with milk, salt, black pepper, and dried rosemary leaves to remove the “gamey” smell and prepare them for the next stage of marination.

It makes the wings extra tasty. The aroma from the rosemary is quite comforting and it adds a nice flavor to the chicken. What’s more, the balance between sweetness and spiciness is spot on!  The chicken you see on this post was marinated for 5 hours. You can certainly go overnight for extra flavor enhancement, but I definitely recommend marinating it for at least 4 hours to deepen the flavor.

Cover the bowl with cling wrap and leave it in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Drain the milk for about 5 minutes.

Put the chicken in a large zipper lock bag (27cm x 33 cm / 10.6 inch x 13 inch) and add the sauce, reserving 1/3 cup worth of sauce for later use. Seal the bag and vigorously shake the bag and massage the chicken so that the sauce smears well into the chicken. Marinate it for at least 4 hours in the fridge. 3. Preheat the oven at 220 degree Celsius (428 degree Fahrenheit) for 20 minutes. Take the chicken out from the fridge. Lay down some baking paper on top of the baking tray and line up the chicken. Make sure they are not stacked up on top of each other. 4. Put the tray into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Take the tray out and turn the chicken over and put it back in the oven. Bake for 10 more minutes. While waiting, prepare clean baking paper lined on another baking tray. This step is only required if the chicken wings are saturated with much liquid (their own juice). Transfer the chicken wings to a new tray. Coat the chicken wings with the remainder of the sauce (from step 2) using a basting brush. Switch the oven to broil (grill in Australia) and cook for 2 minutes or until the skin is charred. Flip the wings and coat with the sauce, broil for 2 minutes or until the skin is charred. 5.
