2 cups apple cider ½ cup Kikkoman® Soy Sauce 2 cloves garlic, minced ½ teaspoon dried gochujang or ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper ¼ cup chopped green onion + extra for garnish 2 pounds chicken wing pieces 1 teaspoon cornstarch
Combine apple cider, soy sauce, garlic, gochujang (or cayenne pepper) and green onion in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Reserve ½ cup of marinade and set aside. Pour remaining marinade over chicken wings in a large shallow dish. Refrigerate at least 2 hours up to 8 hours.
For the glaze, whisk cornstarch with reserved ½ cup of marinade in a saucepan. Heat to a simmer over medium-low heat. Continue to simmer for 3-5 minutes, until marinade thickens. Remove from heat and cool the glaze at room temperature.
Preheat grill to medium heat and grease grill grates. Remove chicken wings from marinade and pat dry with paper towel. Discard marinade. Place wings on grill and cook for 15-20 minutes, flipping wings halfway through cooking.
Remove wings from grill and toss with the glaze in a large bowl. Garnish with green onion and serve.
