  • 2 pounds chicken wings, split and tips discarded
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Korean chili paste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and smashed


For the wings:

  • Place sesame oil, soy sauce and lime juice in a gallon-size ziplock bag. Add the chicken wings and seal the bag. Mix the wings around until all are coated in the marinade. Refrigerate for 3 hours to marinate.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the wings on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until crispy.

For the sauce:

  • Whisk together honey, chili paste, soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice and garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the wings from the oven and carefully pour off any grease. Brush the wings with sauce and toss gently with a metal spatula to coat well. Return to oven and cook an additional 5 to 10 minutes, turning once, until glazed and cooked through. Toss the cooked wings once more to coat well. Serve immediately.
