Korean-Style Chicken Wings

I have an updated Korean-Style wings post, if you're interested in prettier photos and a slightly more complicated recipe... Also, in my newer version, the wings are fried, which makes them higher in calories but also more delicious.

This recipe is rather easy; six ingredients in addition to the chicken wings and it takes less than 30 minutes.

I made enough sauce to cover a dozen wings using:
1/4 cup finely dinced onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon hot pepper paste (see one of my older posts for details or check wikipedia)
2 tablespoons of sugar or corn syrup (corn syrup helps thicken the sauce faster)
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 dozen wings
Get the onions and garlic sauteing in a sauce pan with the sesame oil. You can use any other oil if you like but the sesame adds a nice flavor and a little goes a long way.

Once the onions and garlic are soft, add in the apple juice, hot pepper paste, and sugar and stir. Simmer until the sauce is thickened (about 10 minutes).
Pour the sauce over prepared wings and toss. If you like your wings fried, go ahead and do that, but I boil them in water until they're cooked through, toss them in sauce, and then get them in the broiler to get some color.
And, enjoy!
