With readily available ingredients and simple instructions, you'll be able to cook a homemade Sweet and Spicy Chicken that's sure to impress. Sweet and Spicy Chicken is similar to Korean Fried Chicken but has a different flavor. This dish uses chicken fillet instead of chicken drumettes or chicken wings, and the taste is dominantly sweet and a little bit spicy. As you know, Korean Fried Chicken is a popular dish in South Korea, and it's so popular around the world. This dish is another variation of Korean Fried Chicken but has a different taste. Sweet and Spicy Chicken is made with chicken fillet pieces that are marinated in salt, pepper, and egg. To make Sweet and Spicy Chicken, you'll need gochujang. It's a spicy-sweet pickle made from red chilies, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, and salt. Gochujang has been used as a Korean food for thousands of years, but it has recently become popular worldwide for its distinct savor. Another spice you can use is garlic, ground ginger, white pepper, or black pepper. You can sprinkle hot pepper flakes into your mix if you prefer it spicy.

If you double-frying the chicken fillet, the skin will be very hard and not crunchy at all (not good). The conclusion is, if you have chicken meat with bones inside, you can double-frying it.
