The important bit is the sauce, and it's so simple that it feels like you found a deliciousness cheat code.

Sauce ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp - Tomato Ketchup
  • 1 tbsp - Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp - Minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp - Gochujang (the magic)
  • 1 tbsp - Strawberry Jam (yep)
  • 1 tbsp - Honey


  • Measure it all out into a pan (except the honey)
  • Mix it up
  • Cook on medium heat till it bubbles / gets smelling nice (1-2 mins)
  • Add the honey
  • Mix again
  • Add your crispy chicken wings (hot) or crispy chickpeas or probably cardboard, it will still taste amazing!
  • Mix and coat in the sauce, more coating the better (2-3 mins)
  • (optional) Bake/Air fry coasted food for another 1-3 mins
  • (optional) sprinkle with sesame seeds


So easy and so good. You can be more fancy, I expect you could use the sauce in all sorts of ways - but for me, it's so amazing this way, I've not tried anything else!
