In Korean movies, we often see succulent Korean fried chicken served with an ice cold beer. Well, you don’t need to go all the way to Korea to try out this fingerlicking good chicken dish, as you can make it at home in 15 minutes. Crispy chicken coated with sweet chilli sauce is suitable served with rice or snacks, and of course, an ice-cold beer.


Serves 2

  • For the chicken:

  • 2 chicken fillets
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of paprika powder
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tbsp of plain flour
  • For the sauce:

  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp Korean hot pepper


Cut the chicken fillets into thin slices and season them with minced garlic, a pinch of salt and a pinch of paprika powder. Then dip the chicken slices into a whisked egg and dust them with plain flour (repeat this step twice).

Fill a small pan with oil to heat up. Once the oil is hot, fry the chicken for around 3 minutes on each side (depending on how thick the chicken is), until golden brown.

Once all the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pan and rest it on kitchen roll to drain the excess oil. Mix the honey, ketchup, soya sauce and Korean hot pepper paste together in a large bowl.

Then fry the chicken again in the hot oil, cooking for another minute on each side. Use kitchen roll to drain excess oil from the fried chicken.

Finally, mix the chicken well with the sauce and sesame seeds and enjoy!
