THINLY SLICED GREEN ONIONS

DOUBLE FRY KOREAN FRIED CHICKEN

  1. Wash and cut boneless chicken thighs into bite-size strips.

  7. 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.

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