If you’re over the age of 18, chances are you’ve had your fair share of fried chicken. For example,your mom, your neighbor, your block party bbq, and fast food chains like Popeyes and KFC — each recipe is different. With that said, there’s one type of fried chicken that if you haven’t already had already, will probably change the way you think of the common dish forever.
Meet Korean Fried Chicken or Yangnyeom Chikin as it’s called in South Korea. This type of chicken isn’t made with as much flour as traditional chicken and is lightly tossed in a sweet, spicy, garlicky, glaze while it’s hot. This caramelizes the sauce on the surface of the chicken, preventing it from seeping in too deep and ruining the crispy shell thus creating the beast chicken you’ve ever had!
