So here’s a fun fact about me…I am not the biggest fan of traditional fried chicken. Only a few close friends know this fact because I live in the South and in the South, everyone loves fried chicken. However, fried chicken should be doused in a delicious sauce after it’s fried to perfection. This must be why I love Korean fried chicken so much.

*Update: My thoughts changed on traditional fried chicken after I made it in the air fryer. Air Fryer Fried Chicken is the truth!

What is Korean Fried Chicken

Korean Fried Chicken is fried chicken that has a super crunchy exterior, yet juicy interior. Therefore, the chicken is usually double fried in oil and then covered in a delicious spicy, sweet and sour type sauce. Any part of the chicken can be used to make Korean Fried Chicken.

Korean fried chicken is popular for the spicy sauce that it is covered in. The main ingredient to this sauce is a spicy Korean paste known as gochujang. The good thing about this paste is there are different heat levels. I used the mild for this recipe so I could enjoy the flavors more but the paste can be extremely spicy if you are not careful.

Why make these chicken wings in an Air Fryer?

Most Korean fried chicken is double fried in oil. Part of me wanted to find a healthier alternative but another part of me didn’t want to do all that work. Blame it on the baby, work, life…but if I can simplify a delicious recipe then that’s what I’m going to do.

Coating these chicken wings in cornstarch and frying them for 30 minutes in the air fryer was easy, fast, and healthy.

How to Make Korean Air Fried Chicken Wings?

Creating Korean Air Fried Chicken Wings is easy. You don’t even need to preheat the air fryer. Just set the temperature to 390 degrees, season the chicken wings, cover them in a corn starch, and cook in air fryer for 30-35 minutes.

Make sure when coating the chicken wings with cornstarch, that you shake off the cornstarch from each piece really well. You want the chicken wings to be completely covered but you don’t want too much excess corn starch. Pick up each chicken piece with a pair of tongs, tap it against the side of your bowl before placing it in the air fryer basket.

As with any air fryer recipe, make sure the bottom of your air fryer basket is properly seasoned with oil so your chicken does not stick.

Never use aresole can sprays in your air fryer. Invest in a good quality spray oil bottle. I use this brand.

As always, enjoy.

Notes on Korean Air Fried Chicken Wings

  • The sauce provided in this recipe is enough to lightly coat 2 lbs of chicken wings. If you desire more sauce, feel free to double the sauce ingredients.
  • I’d suggest serving Korean Air Fried Chicken with a nice quick pickled carrot.
