    The football fans loved these. I did an assortment of wings including traditional wings and these Korean Wings won hands down. I did dust the wings with a flour / cornstarch / seasoning coating before frying. This sauce is great!  -  18 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The men in my family gave it a....meh. I baked for an hour at 375C, basting as I went. The chicken was fabulous, tender and moist, but there wasn't that Korean BBQ hit. #Allrecipesallstarscanada #InternationalFavourites  -  18 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    3.22.18 Used the air fryer for cooking the wings, and OMG, that sauce, just can’t say enough good things about it, except FABULOUS!! Made the sauce in the morning, so this was a really easy dinner this evening cooking in the air fryer. Bring out plenty of napkins because you’ll need them, but these wings were a total treat tonight. Definitely will be making these wings again very soon.  -  22 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
