For the wings
- 4 pounds (2 kilograms) chicken wings
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 and 3/4 teaspoon salt
- Oil spray
For the Korean BBQ dipping sauce
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil (or vegetable oil)
- 4 cloves garlic , grated
- 1/2 thumb ginger , grated
- 4 tablespoons gochujang Korean fermented chili garlic sauce
- 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
To cook the wings
Arrange the wings on a baking rack without overlapping them. Place the rack in the fridge for a few hours or overnight to dry the wings. Alternatively, you may dry the wings thoroughly with a paper towel.
Preheat oven to 120 degrees C (250 F).
Add the wings, baking powder and salt into a large Ziploc bag. Shake to coat the wings evenly.
Line a baking tray with aluminium foil. Place a baking rack on top. Spray the rack with a thin layer of oil. Arrange chicken on the rack and make sure there is some space between the wings.
Place the wings on the lower rack of the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 120 degrees C (250 F).
Move the baking tray to the upper level of the oven. Increase the oven temperature to 220 degrees C (425 F). Continue to bake for another 40 minutes, until the surface turns dark golden brown and crispy.
To make the dipping sauce
Mix gochujang, light soy sauce, rice vinegar and sugar in a bowl.
Add oil to a saucepan and heat over medium low heat until warm.
Add ginger and garlic. Stir until fragrant.
Add the mixed sauce. Cook and stir over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until the sauce turns to even thickness, without boiling. Transfer to a bowl.
Serve the wings warm with sauce.
