  • Summary

    A slightly healthier, much easier, take on Korean style fried chicken. Inspired by the food carts found on the streets in Seoul. Breaded in corn flakes, oven baked, and finished with an addicting sweet and spicy Korean inspired BBQ sauce. Serve with steamed rice and a plate full of stir fried veggies for an easy dinner that's different, delicious, colorful, and full of flavor.
