Thank you to my friend Bon-Hwa for allowing me to share her family recipe with you.
Spicy Korean Chicken
4 chicken breasts (cubed)
1 finely sliced clove of garlic
1/2 cup of corn starch
2 beaten eggs
For the first part:
Season your chicken cubes with salt and pepper and dip it into egg batter before placing it into corn starch. Make sure the chicken is evenly coated.
In a saucepan add 4 tablespoons of olive oil and add garlic to the oil before adding chicken. Cook chicken for 3-5 mins and remove from pan.
For the second part:
In a bowl mix together:
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of honey
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of vinegar
1 teaspoon of Hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons of gujong sauce ( I bought this from Sun Sun Supermarket in Dbn North)
1 teaspoon of crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon of crushed ginger
Whisk all these together to form a paste.
In the same pan that you friex the chicken in , add in some sesame seeds and about 2 mins after add the sauce and a minute later add the chicken and let it cook together for about 5 mins. I added some cashew but you can add whatever you like.
Enjoy on it’s own or serve with rice or noodles.
