Spicy Korean Garlic Fried Chicken
I found this recipe on YouTube about a month ago and it’s been calling to me ever since. Today was the day. Maangchi is a Korean woman living in new York with a great food blog and YouTube channel. Look her up if you have any interest in Korean food. It’s great home cooking-type stuff.
I started with 2 of the huge chicken thighs from the chicken I butchered in the fall. Skinned and boned there was 500 grams of meat. I tossed it with egg, potato starch, ginger, soy sauce and pepper.
Next I made an oil infused with onion flowers from my garden, garlic from my friend Karen and chili flakes. I saved the garlic and onion flower for garnish and strained the oil for later.
I deep fried the chicken pieces in a wok for about 5 minutes then let then drain while I made the sweet and sour sauce.
As a final step I re-fried the Chicken bits to get them extra crispy and tossed them in the sweet and sour sauce with the garlic and onion flowers.
