  • 3 pounds chicken wings, thawed
  • 3/4 cup light soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 45 tablespoon Gochujang (red chili paste) *go with 3 if you don’t like spicy
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 23 large cloves)
  • One -1” piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • Minced green onions
  • White sesame seeds


  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack inside; set aside. Place your oven rack to the upper third tray.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, chili flakes, Gochujang, honey, garlic, and ginger. Place your wings in the bowl and gently toss/stir to coat all of the wings. Allow to rest for 10 minutes. If you’re in a hurry you can skip this part and dump it all into the Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker. After resting, add the wings and the marinade liquid to the Instant Pot.
  3. Close the lid on your IP, set the cooking time to 10 minutes/High pressure. If your wings are frozen set it to 12 minutes/High pressure. When the time is up, carefully do a quick release.
  4. With tongs, remove the wings to the rimmed baking sheet and set the IP to sauté or brown function as you’ll need to thicken up the sauce. Depending on how watery your wings were your sauce can take 10-25 minutes to get to a thickened state. Just stir often to not burn. The sauce should be thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Once it gets to that state, remove it from the pot and place in a container.
  5. While the sauce is thickening up, place the wings in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the skin on both sides (~5-8 minutes per side). By this time the sauce should be thick enough to baste the wings. Slather the wings with the thickened sauce and broil just for a minute as you want to slightly char the sauce but not burn it.
  6. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions. Store the remaining sauce in the fridge for up to a week.
