Spicy Korean Chicken Wings

Spicy Korean Fried Chicken

These spicy Korean chicken wings are crispy and coated with sticky, sweet and spicy sauce. They are so simple, but also so delicious. The skins get all crispy while the meat was still moist.

These chicken wings not only delicious but they are super easy to make. The secret to getting extra crispy skin is to use starch and double fry the chicken.
