Yangnyeom Chicken (Spicy Korean Fried Chicken)


Yangnyeom chicken is a double deep-fried chicken smothered in a sticky, spicy and sweet red sauce. It’s one of many variations of Korean fried chicken and definitely the most famous and addictive one.
Cooking Time: 15mins - 30mins
Serves:3 to 4
Total time: 30mins - 60mins
Course: Entrée
Cook Method: Deep-Fry
Cuisine: Korean









Ingredients:

1.4 kg chicken pieces (wings, drumsticks or boneless chicken thigh)
2 tbsp rice wine
2 tsp ginger (minced)
1 tsp fine sea salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
1 cup potato starch (or cornstarch)
Oil (for deep-frying)
Sesame seeds (toasted)
Spring onions (finely chopped)

KOREAN FRIED CHICKEN SPICY SAUCE
3 tbsp tomato sauce
2 tbsp gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)
¼ cup honey
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp sesame oil




Steps:
  1. In a large bowl, place the chicken, rice wine, minced ginger, salt, black pepper and combine them well.
  2. In a separate bowl, put in 1 cup of starch. Then evenly coat the chicken, piece by piece with the starch and set side.
  3. Add a generous amount of oil in a deep saucepan or fryer, and boil it until the oil temperature reaches 180°C. Add the battered chicken carefully and fry them until they cook, approximately 5-7 mins. Do not overcrowd the pan.
  4. Take out the cooked chicken and place them on a paper towel. Once the deep frying of all chicken is completed, using a skimmer, quickly scoop out any floating remains from the oil. Wait till the oil temperature reaches 175 °C again, then once again deep fry the chicken in small batches for approximately 2-3 mins. Fry until the batter is golden and crisp. Set aside.
  5. In a separate saucepan, add in the Korean fried chicken sauce ingredients. Boil the sauce over low medium heat and stir well. Remove the pan from heat once the sauce starts boiling.
  6. Place the double fried chicken into a large mixing bowl, and then pour the fried chicken sauce over the chicken. Mix them lightly, but thoroughly. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and finely chopped spring onions. Serve it hot immediately.
  7. Alternatively, fried chicken and the sauce can be served separately where the sauce is eaten as a dipping sauce.
