▢ 2 pounds (907.18 g) chicken wings
▢ 1 teaspoon (1 teaspoon) Kosher Salt
▢ 1 teaspoon (1 teaspoon) Ground Black Pepper, or gochujaru
For the Sauce:
▢ 2 tablespoons (2 tablespoons) gochujang
▢ 1 tablespoon (1 tablespoon) mayonnaise
▢ 1 teaspoon (1 teaspoon) agave nectar
▢ 1 tablespoon (1 tablespoon) Sesame Oil

▢ 2 packets (2 packets) Splenda, or sugar
▢ 2 teaspoons (2 teaspoons) Sesame Seeds, optional
▢ 1/4 cup (25 g) Chopped Green Scallions, optional
Preheat your oven or air fryer to 400°F
Salt and Pepper the chicken wings and place in the air fryer basket.
Set the timer to 20 minutes and allow the chicken wings to cook, turning once at 10 minutes.
As the chicken bakes or air fries, mix together all the sauce ingredients and let the sauce marinate while the chicken wings finish cooking.
As you near the 20-minute mark use a thermometer to check the meat. When the chicken wings reach 160F remove them from the oven and place into a bowl.
Pour about half the sauce on the wings, and toss to coat the wings with the sauce.
Place the chicken wings back into the oven or air fryer and cook for another 5 minutes until the sauce has glazed over, and the chicken is completely cooked and has reached at least 165F.
Remove, sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped green onions and serve with plenty of napkins.
