Grilled Korean Chicken Wings

Being a girl from Central New York, you know I love chicken wings. LOVE them. There is nothing like a great, crispy, hot Buffalo wing with blue cheese dipping sauce. That being said, I wanted to try something different. I decided to grill them for some nice charcoal smoky flavor and baste them in a sweet and spicy, sticky Korean glaze. They were crazy good.


  • Chicken Wings
  • 1/4 C tamari
  • 1 TBSP Mirin
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 TBSP sesame chili oil
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger (use fresh ginger grated if you have it, but I didn’t on this particular day)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 TBSP sesame seeds


  1. Mince the garlic.  In a mixing bowl, whisk together all ingredients (except chicken)
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper
  3. Grill the chicken on a preheated grill, turning occasionally for about 20 minutes. Baste the wings with the glaze occasionally throughout grilling. Grill until internal temperature is 160° and no longer pink inside. Remove from heat to a platter and set aside.
  4. Heat a small skillet on medium and add sesame seeds. Toss them or stir them for about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  5. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the wings and serve. Enjoy!
