Garlic Pepper Fried Chicken
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with W and DJ
Of the 9 meals that I’ve rated 4.0 among 595 posts thus far – rate of 1.5% – 4 have come within the past couple weeks. I’m either on a lucky streak or feeling especially generous these days; I’ve noticed that ratings tend to slip during times of stress or other downswings in mood. Or, as 2 of the last 4 have been my own dishes, including this one, maybe I’m in a groove.
I’ll eventually post a recipe, but for now I’ll just say that it involves 3 basic steps. First, I dredged the chicken pieces in a cornstarch/flour mix and deep-fried them in canola oil. Second, I made a dressing by simmering garlic and white and black pepper in rice wine and oyster sauce. Third, after the chicken and dressing were complete, I tossed the two together along with fresh parsley. It was awesome.
