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.
