Korean Food: Mini Fried Chicken (미니 양념치킨)

aeriskitchen's picture
Today’s recipe is Korean styled mini fried chicken with a sweet and mildly spicy sauce. The reason I use the name “mini” for this recipe is because I will use bite sized pieces of chicken breast for it. It is nice to eat since the pieces of fried chicken are small without the bone and skin. Try this delicious dish for a party or football game someday.
