Korean Fried Chicken Wings

For our second Supper Club dish, Dino wanted to make hot and spicy Korean chicken wings like the ones he gets from Hell’s Chicken in NYC.

Double frying these chicken wings makes them nice and crispy. A sweet and spicy sauce and a dusting of crushed peanuts at the end are the perfect finish.

Korean Fried Chicken Wings

These were a big hit with our Supper Club, and we love any excuse to bring out the cast iron Dutch oven for deep frying.
