Remember when the world first went crazy for Korean fried chicken? Also known as yangnyeom, Korean fried chicken is a popular fixture at bars (it pairs well with beer!), restaurants, and even street food stalls. Do you know the secret to this fried chicken’s crisp and crunchy skin and what makes it distinctly Korean? It’s double fried! After the second round of frying, the chicken is then tossed in flavored sauces and glazes, which range from mild and sweet soy-garlic sauces to fiery chili honey sauces. It’s sometimes sprinkled with ground peanuts, sesame seeds, and chili flakes for extra texture and flavor.
