Double Fry Padak Korean Fried Chicken 파닭

WHAT IS PADAK CHICKEN?

Padak (파닭) – double fried chicken with very thin, crispy skin topped with a heaping mound of thinly sliced green onions and a zippy garlic soy mustard sauce.

Compared to thick American-styled fried chicken that relies on seasoned chicken and buttermilk batter, Korean-style fried chicken renders out the fat from the skin, giving it a crackly, crispy, paper thin skin.

HOW TO DOUBLE FRY CHICKEN

Cut boneless chicken thighs into bite-size strips.

Season with salt and ground white pepper and Shaoxing wine or Soju. Let marinate for at least 30 mins.

After the chicken has been marinated. Remove from the marinade.

In a separate bowl, add potato starchcurry powdergarlic powder, cayenne, paprika, pepper and salt. Mix well.

Add in chicken thigh pieces and evenly coat the chicken.

Add an egg to the same mixing bowl and mix the chicken pieces with the egg and dry ingredients for a second coating.

Add oil to a deep fryer or frying pot and heat up to 350F. Test the internal temperature with a digital food thermometer. You can also test if the oil is ready by placing the back of a wooden spoon into the pot. If you see bubbles, then your oil is ready.

Fry the chicken in the deep fryer for 5 minutes. Work in small batches and do not overcrowd.

Remove from the KFC deep fryer and let rest for 5 minutes.

Double fry for an extra crispy texture. This time raise the temperature to 375F and deep fry until crispy and golden brown. Fry for 3-5 minutes, watching closely.

Remove the perfectly non-greasy fried chicken from deep fryer and place in a plate lined with a paper towel to soak up excess oil—Reserve for later.

HOW TO PREPARE THINLY SLICED GREEN ONIONS

Thinly slice your green onions. I use this tool. A green onion slicer makes the task of shredding green onions much easier and faster than by hand! Hand cutting scallions are not very rewarding. It is labour intensive!

Place the thinly sliced green onions in a bowl of cold water. This ensures the green onions stay crispy and will help remove the sharpness!

HOW TO MAKE PADAK VINAIGRETTE SAUCE

Mix all the sauce ingredients (light soy sauce, dijon mustard, mirin, water, sugar, sesame oil, rice vinegar and minced garlic) in a small mixing bowl.

Taste and adjust to desired.
