In Korean movies, we often see succulent Korean fried chicken served with an ice-cold beer. Well, you don’t need to go all the way to Korea to try out this finger-licking good chicken dish, as you can make it at home in 15 minutes. Crispy chicken coated with sweet chilli sauce is suitable served with rice or snacks, and of course, an ice-cold beer.
- 2 chicken fillets
- 1tsp of minced garlic
- pinch of salt
- pinch of paprika powder
- 1 egg
- 5 tbsp of plain flour
- 3 tbsp of honey
- 2 tbsp of ketchup
- 1 tbsp of soya sauce
- 1 tbsp of sesame
- 1 tsp of Korean hot pepper paste (add more to taste)
Cut the chicken fillets into thin slices and season them with minced garlic, a pinch of salt and paprika powder.
Then dip the chicken slices into a whisked egg, and dust with plain flour (repeat this step twice.)
Fill a small pan (one cm deep) with oil to fry the chicken. Once the oil is hot, fry the chicken for around three minutes each side (depending on how thick the chicken is), until golden brown.
Once all the chicken is cooked, take them out and rest on kitchen roll to drain excess oil. Mix the honey, ketchup, soya sauce and Korean hot pepper paste together in a large bowl.
Then fry the chicken again in the hot oil, and cook for another minute on each side. Use kitchen roll again to drain excess oil from the fried chicken.
Finally, mix the chicken well with the sauce and sesame seeds and enjoy!
