Family-Style Korean Fried Chicken Recipe

Family-Style Korean Fried Chicken


These chicken bites, marinated Korean-style with sesame seeds, cornstarch, and soy sauce, and then fried, will be a hit at a large gathering.


  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup cornstarch
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • oil for frying


  1. Whisk eggs, soy sauce, and sugar together in a large bowl.
  2. Combine cornstarch, flour, sesame seeds, and salt in a separate bowl. Whisk in egg mixture. Fold green onions and garlic into the batter.
  3. Stir chicken into the batter until each piece is coated. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator, 8 hours to 2 days. Stir 1 to 2 times per day.
  4. Fill a heavy saucepan with 1 1/2 to 2 inches of oil. Heat on medium-high heat until a small amount of batter sizzles when dropped in.
  5. Stir chicken again to coat evenly with batter. Fry in batches until deeply browned, about 3 minutes per batch. Drain on a large plate lined with paper towels or newspapers.
