Spicy Korean Fried Chicken

Spicy Korean Fried Chicken – Dakgangjeong

Spicy Korean Fried Chicken – the BEST recipe we ever made!

The stickiness, sweetness and spiciness from the hot sauce will literally numb your tongue on every bite but I bet you’ll ask for more. On top of that, we double-fried our chicken to make it super crunchy on the outside but tender and juicy on the inside – it is truly finger-lickin’ good!

Tip: If you like it extra spicy, add more “Gochujang” and balance the saltiness with brown sugar.
