BBQ Kimchi Baked Wings with Wasabi Peanuts

FullSizeRender (4)

Yes, I know I am on a kimchi phase. I think I’m trying to make up for all the years that it was missing from the life. This dish is inspired by my friend Chi from Pocha Factory. She made the most delicious Asian Inspired burger for the Final Burger Battle which took place last year, and which she won. Besides the kimchi and her secret sauce, she added chopped wasabi peanuts to her burger. This added a nice extra crunch and spiciness that went very well with the meat.


This serves 3-4 people.


800grs of chicken wings

For the sauce:

½ cup of BBQ sauce

½ cup of kimchi

1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons of ginger syrup

1 tablespoon of sesame oil

2 tablespoons of brown sugar

2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

½ teaspoon of salt

Juice of ½ a lime

1 tablespoon of honey


½ cup of wasabi peanuts, chopped

3 tablespoons of chopped chives


Preheat the oven to 200C/390F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Blend all of the ingredients for the sauce until smooth. Taste it and adjust the salt to your liking. Pour the sauce into a large bowl and add the chicken wings. Toss to coat them well.

Spread the wings on a single layer over the prepared baking sheet.

Bake them for 1 hour until the wings are caramelized.

Sprinkle the chopped wasabi peanuts and chives over the wings. Enjoy!

    Really interesting! I bought a jar of all daikon kimchi by accident. I like daikon but, like cabbage even more. Anywho, I need to use it up and will give this a try…. Maybe with some extra Korean chili flakes. Thanks

    Lovely idea and those wings look sooo good! We’ve also once used wasabi peanuts as a crust for salmon, it’s such a nice touch!
