Yangnyeom Chicken


During our new year celebration I made some yangnyeom chicken. It’s basically Korean spicy chicken with a hint of sweetness. This dish is perfect for celebrations because it goes well with beer!

Below is the recipe I that I use. I know my chicken doesn’t look too good on the photo but it actually tastes good! Feel free to adjust my recipe to your liking.

Serving size: 3-4


1kg whole or choice cut chicken
Marinate in-
3tbsp Cooking wine
2tbsp Ginger juice

1/2cup flour with a pinch of salt
1/2cup potato starch
Enough oil for deep-frying
Optional garnish: crushed peanuts

For seasoning sauce-
6tbsp water
5tbsp maple syrup (or corn syrup,honey)
4tbsp soy sauce
4tbsp unsweetened strawberry jam
5tbsp ketchup
4tbsp red pepper paste(add more for extra spice)
3tbsp onion juice
2tbsp brown sugar
1/2tsp pepper


  1. Clean and chop your chicken.
  2. Marinate chicken and set aside for 20 mins.
  3. While waiting, make seasoning sauce.
  4. Pre-heat the oil in a pan or pot, whichever works for you for deep-frying.
  5. Prepare potato starch and flour mix.
  6. If your chicken is ready, coat it evenly with the flour mix.
  7. Once the oil is hot enough, start frying chicken. You can do it in batches if your pan or pot is not enough.
  8. Deep-fry your chicken into a nice golden brown.
  9. To make it crispy, you’ll need fry it twice. After frying, set it aside.
  10. Cook your seasoning sauce. Bring it to a boil.
  11. Toss your chicken into the seasoning sauce. Coat each piece nice and evenly.
  12. Serve the chicken by itself or garnish it with peanuts.

I will be posting a video on youtube of me making this dish. You can go to my channel and check it out later.
