How to Cook Korean Style Street Fried Chicken

  • Wash and drain the dressed chicken and remove the tail glands. Cut the breast in the center to make it flat. Remove any remaining innards.
  • Flatten the chicken by pressing the back of the chicken to make it flat. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl or any container, combine the brining ingredients: salt, sugar, oyster sauce, water and lemon slices. Stir until the salt and sugar are dissolved.
  • Get a zip lock bag or plastic bag and put in the chicken with the brining solution. Close the bag and remove excess air. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  • After marinating, remove from bag and drain in a colander or rack. Make the batter by combining flour, cinnamon powder, red chili pepper powder, salt and water.
  • Mix the batter ingredients until it becomes smooth. Brush the batter on the entire chicken and set aside.
  • Heat cooking oil in a deep pot and deep fry the chicken for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Prick also the legs and breast with a small knife 5 minutes before the end of cooking time.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauce like gravy or catsup.
