I would eat fried chicken everyday if I could. I decided to try another “healthier” fried chicken recipe, with an Asian twist. I tried to recreate Korean fried chicken. It didn’t taste like Mad for Chicken or Bonchon, but it satisfied the craving.

The only thing I would have done different is leave out the wings to dry out after tossing them in the egg whites and baking soda. I think this would have helped give them an even crispier texture.

  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. Whisk egg whites and coat chicken wings.
  3. Sprinkle chicken wings with baking soda, salt and pepper. Toss until evenly coated. Let the wings dry in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  4. Place wings onto a baking rack and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  5. Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest.
  6. Combine garlic with soy sauce, hot chili sauce, honey, and sesame oil.
  7. In a sauce pan, heat the sauce over medium heat. Let the sauce reduce for about 3 minutes.

With work and wedding planning, I’ve been slacking with my posts. I’ll promise to post some more recipes once things settle down a bit. You might even see some DIY wedding projects along the way.
