If you are following me on Instagram you will notice that I have been consuming too much Korean food. I have been experimenting my KFC recipe for a very long time and after the 10th trial, I finally nailed it.
This Korean fried chicken (KFC) is double fried until extra crispy, then tossed in a sticky, sweet and spicy sauce.
The thing that makes this Korean chicken, aside from the technique, is the gochujang sauce. It’s a funky, fermented and slightly sweet condiment that also packs an impressive heat punch. I used a gochujang sauce which was the consistency of thick ketchup.
The biggest trick to successful deep frying is oil temperature. Too low, and you’ll end up with a soggy mess. To avoid that, I recommend using a thermometer for precise temp monitoring 350F to be exact and try to maintain that temperature to achieve that crispy chicken wings.
Serve these delicious wings hot with a cold beer on the side and please enjoy my recipe
