Korean Fried Chicken~양념통닭 (Yangnyeom Tongdak/Yang Nyeom Tong Dak)


Here we go again, another Fried Chicken recipe I hear you say! :-) Well, this is a bit different, it's the perfect Korean Fried Chicken~KFC (Yangnyeom Tongdak) recipe in my opinion. I have tried many and this is absolutely the best so far. The chicken is fried twice at a moderate heat to obtain the golden-brown crust. The end result is a fried chicken that's non greasy and it's juiciness is retained inside while the outside is crispy and crackly. The fried chicken can be enjoyed as it is; but, it will give you the extra kick when paired with this delicious sweet and spicy sauce. Yum!

(6 to 10 minutes, depend on the size of the chicken wing) Drain the chicken wings on paper towels. Then fry the again for another 6 to 8 minutes or until it is crispy and golden brown in color.

While you are frying, make the sauce. Add canola oil in a heated pan. Mix in the minced garlic and stir until fragrant. Then add in tomato ketchup, rice syrup, hot pepper paste, and apple vinegar.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
