Wings and air fryers go together like peanut butter and jelly. Air fryers were MADE for wings, and they’re often the first food people go for to test out their new machines.

There are near endless possibilities to the lip smacking wing creations you can make in your air fryer. My tangy keto air fryer dill pickle wings and my spicy air fryer jerk chicken wings are just a couple of amazing recipes to keep your taste buds happy.

And you can’t forget about air fryer buffalo wings!

But when I first made these Korean Style Chicken Wings and took a bite, I knew they had to go up on the blog. They’re SO good and SO easy for everything from your game day parties to a weeknight dinner. You gotta try them!

What makes these wings Korean Style?

Korean style wings are centered around the amazing ingredient, Gojuchang is a spicy chili sauce, made with red peppers, rice and sea salt.

It’s kind of reminiscent of sriracha, and the best part is it’s super cheap and super easy to find at your grocery store. You can make these wings today if you want (and I recommend it!).
