Sweet and Sticky Korean Fried Chicken
Easy, sweet and sticky Korean Fried Chicken recipe that takes only 3 key ingredients: chicken, soy sauce, and sugar. Recipe by Damn Delicious.
2 cups vegetable oil
2 pounds chicken wings
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
Season chicken wings with salt and pepper, to taste.
Working in batches, add the chicken wings to the Dutch oven, 5 or 6 at a time, and fry until light brown, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Increase oil temperature to 400 degrees F. Add the chicken wings to the Dutch oven again and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Heat soy sauce and sugar in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce has thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
Serve wings immediately, tossed with soy sauce glaze.

Hi everyone – it’s Chung-Ah from Damn Delicious! I am so incredibly thrilled to be here guest posting for Bee today. I had the amazing opportunity to meet her at a Glam event a couple months back and in all honesty, I was kind of nervous to be around her. After all, she’s a foodie celebrity! But once we started talking, I immediately loved her. She’s incredibly sweet and so down-to-earth, and she comes up with the best recipes! I’ve made a countless number of her recipes, from her honey walnut shrimp and her spam fried rice and they all never failed to deliver.
So when Bee asked me to guest post, I knew I just had to share one of my all-time favorite Korean recipes. It’s actually the boyfriend’s mom’s recipe, one that she’s been making for the past 20 years. And with just 3 ingredients of chicken wings, soy sauce and sugar, these chicken wings will rock your socks off. These babies are double-fried to the most crunchy, crisp texture and then slathered in a reduced soy sauce glaze, leaving these wings to be so incredibly sticky and sweet. I highly recommend doubling the batch for these wings because once you take a bite into the sticky goodness, you won’t be able to stop!
