I mean, I at all times knew in my thoughts there was no method I’d miss looking my brother compete within the Olympics, but I toyed with the concept for sure.

Glad I got smart, performed the supportive older sister role, and dragged my butt onto the 16 hour flight. Because with out a doubt, that may be a journey I will never, ever forget. Lost bags and all…

After Red had competed, it was time for simply several of my household members and I to head home. We decided to spend a day in Seoul earlier than our flight again to LA. Even although we merely spent 24 hours in Seoul, I can quite say that it's such a groovy city. Full of so a lot tradition and energy. The backyard highway markets have been my absolute favorite. They had everything from recent produce, to domestic made dumplings, to waffles crammed with ice cream (and the waffles have been formed like fish). Of course, additionally they had essentially one of the foremost delicious fried chicken, tossed in Korean kind BBQ sauce.

The dumplings, which I’ve now made a pair models of right the following on HBH, have been absolutely one in every of my favourite foods. But the Korean bird was similarly amazing.

With the 1-year of anniversary of our journey falling on similarly this week and last. I thought it was the proper time to recreate the Korean chicken. Hard to trust I didn’t make this sooner, but oh my gosh, I’m certain pleased I lastly did.

It. Is. The. Best.

First, I’m no longer quite certain how typical this is, as I didn’t base it off of any certain Korean fried bird recipe (I quite couldn’t discover any). I simply desire to lay on the market that here's my take at the bird we had at the streets in Korea. It’s no longer precisely the same, but it’s quite dang close, and extra importantly, quite dang delicious…and possibly fitter too!

To start, you have to bread the chicken. I use my go-to method…tossing the bird in barely buttermilk, then coating it in finely beaten corn flakes. The finely beaten corn flakes are KEY. They quite supply the bird an genuine “fried” type and texture, with out in reality frying the chicken.

Tip? Pulse the corn flakes within the meals processor to quite wreck them down right into a positive crumb.

Next, bake the bird within the oven till it's crisped all over. My secret's to softly dab/brush the bird with olive oil earlier than it bakes. This facilitates the coating to quite crisp up properly within the oven.

While the bird is baking, make the sauce. The sauce is the absolute coronary middle of the recipe. It’s sweet, spicy, and possibly my family’s favourite sauce of all time. The most very vital component is Gochujang (Korean chili paste). It’s spicy with barely sweetness, and it’s super flavorful. You can discover it right the following on Thrive Market.

Drizzle or toss the bird with the sauce, sprinkle with sesame seed, and EAT. I love serving this with steamed rice and veggies for a general meal. But this bird makes for a quite fun appetizer too.
