Korean Fried Chicken – 韩式炸鸡

We often ask what makes Korean Fried Chicken so good! The secret is double frying! Double frying makes the chicken extra crispy and even after you coat it with the delicious sauce, it is still able to stay crispy for a good amount of time. For our take on the ultimate korean fried chicken, we took little elements of different styles of korean fried chicken like garlic, soy sauce, rice syrup, dried chillies and honey mustard. Creating this amazing sweet, savoury and sticky sauce to coat over the crispy fried chicken. Perfect to wash down with an ice cold beer, doesn’t mean we are stuck at home we can’t enjoy life!

We encourage everyone to stay at home and cook more! Those who don’t know how to cook, start learning! And those that are already home cooks, it’s time for you to become master chefs!
