  • 4 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice
  • cooking spray I used Fry Light

For the glaze

  • 60ml/1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 75ml/1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic or 3 cloves
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp Gochujang paste or ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds for garnish
  • 2 green onions for garnish


  • Season the chicken wings with the mix of the white pepper, garlic powder, Chinese 5 spice and salt.
  • Arrange in an air fryer in a single layer, spray with a cooking spray and air fry for 10 minutes at 200C/400F, flip and cook for 8-10 minutes longer. You might have to do a couple of batches depending on your air fryer capacity.
  • While the wings are cooking, combine the soy sauce, honey, grated ginger, garlic, butter and the Gochujang paste in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, simmer while stirring until thick and syrupy.
  • Pour the sauce all over the wings and toss to coat. Alternatively you can brush the sauce on the wings. Serve sprinkled with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
