Fried Chicken Korean Style

Fried Chicken Korean Style is a popular Korean specialty. It can be consumed as a meal, finger food or after meal snack. Double frying the chicken wings make all the difference and is the secret to achieving the seriously thin crispy crust that is the hallmark of this popular Korean favourite. After being doubled fried, the fried chicken wings are then lightly tossed in a sweet, slightly spicy and garlicky glaze while still hot. Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, these chicken wings are extremely easy to make and it’s super addictive.
