Spicy Fried Chicken w Sweet Chili Sauce
We are still trying to replicate and improve on some of our favorite fried chicken restaurants that we miss in Seoul so we decided to do some deep frying. We don't usually fry foods (for health reasons) but for some reason I thought a certain recipe (my own) and mix of ingredients would work better than previous attempts. Simply we wanted something spicy without having to smother hot sauce after the deep fry. Instead of just making regular old batter, we added all the spicy stuff like gochugaru (Korean red chili pepper flakes) and cayenne powder. Also, we did a pre-rub of the drumsticks consisting of super hot sauce from Hooters and other seasoning. The result was flavorful, extra-crispy drumsticks that didn't have as much spice than we thought it would but enough to eat without added hot sauce. I would definitely recommend this recipe for any fried chicken lovers out there.
