Korean Fried Chicken Air Fryer

We’ve always loved the idea of ​​making Korean fried chicken at home, but even with anything we cook, frying is never fun, so we never did it. Steph suggested using the deep fryer, which I thought was a brilliant idea, and I developed this double air frying technique that produced some damn crispy chicken that I think rivals the best fried versions and is so much healthier.

how to make korean fried chicken

The secret to Korean fried chicken is double frying. Double frying in the air fryer works just as well as deep frying, but much easier. The secret is to coat the chicken after you first fry it with cooking spray. It’s not totally necessary, but it really helps. To make Korean fried chicken in an air fryer:

  1. Cover the chicken. I first coated the chicken with oil to aid in heat transfer, then with salt and pepper, then with corn or potato starch, which is what Asian-style chicken is traditionally prepared with for a lighter, crispier outer casing. .
  2. Air fry the chicken. 400ºF for 15 minutes. It is not necessary to preheat the air fryer.
  3. Prepare the sauce. Pendant that the poulet is en train de frire à l’air, prepare the sauce in combinant all the ingredients of the sauce, then in the chauffant just a très légère ébullition (or even in the faisant simply chauffer au micro-ondes pendant one minute).
  4. Flip the chicken. After 15 minutes, flip the chicken and continue to air cook for another 5 minutes. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Double fry and sauce. Once the chicken has cooled, spray it again with oil, then air fry it one last time at 400°F for 5 minutes. Remove and toss with the sauce, then enjoy immediately.

Korean Fried Chicken Dip

The magical sauce that accompanies Korean fried chicken is a mixture of honey, brown sugar, gochujang, and ketchup. Really: ketchup is a very important ingredient if you want to keep things authentic. It’s important to note that this is just one possible sauce: there are other sauces for Korean fried chicken, but this one (at least in America) is the most iconic.

What is gochujang?

Gochujang is a very lightly spiced fermented Korean paste that goes great with anything. We also use it for our sweet and spicy Gochujang Honey Roasted Chicken and Potatoes, our 10-minute weeknight spicy beef stir-fry udon, and our Mochi Kimchi Egg Stew recipe. Traditionally, it comes in containers, but these days you can find it in bottles. much more convenient squeezables in the asian aisle of literally any grocery store.

What if I don’t have cooking spray?

Spray oil is really good, cheap, and irreplaceable in the kitchen, especially if you have an air fryer. It’s no worse for you than any other type of oil, as long as you know when to use it and its limitations. We love a good non-propellant oil with a high smoke point, but you can use any oil you like (except olive oil due to its low smoke point) and you can even create your own.

If you don’t have a deep fryer (although they’re pretty cheap these days), you can easily do it the classic way: fry the chicken until golden brown, then remove and let it cool a bit before putting it back in for a few more minutes. Then drizzle with sauce.

Baked Korean Fried Chicken

If you don’t have a deep fryer, you can use an oven to cook these wings. Just follow the recipe as is, but preheat the oven to 425ºF and bake the wings on the middle rack for 30 minutes, then flip and continue for another 10-20 minutes (50 minutes total). Drop them into the sauce once they are cool enough to handle.

Will this sauce work on any type of fried chicken?

Yeah! If you’re feeling lazy, you can make the sauce and mix it up at the grocery store or fried chicken chain. It won’t be as good or the same, but still pretty impressive.
