Soy Garlic Korean Fried Chicken Recipe
Today I’m super excited about this recipe! So simple ingredients yet, SUPER YUMMY taste!
Everyone LOVE fried chicken from kid to adult, no gender matters. But, if it’s Korean Fried Chicken? Even better! 😉
This time, I used Sempio’s tempura powder to fry the chicken instead make it from scratch and made none spicy Sweet Garlic Sauce.

Honestly, I used many different brands of tempura powder from stores, but none of them was impressive to me. When I tried Sempio’s tempura powder first time, I was super impressed how delightfully crispy; even after toss in some sauce or cold! I’ll never go back to the other tempura powder brands.
You can find tempura powder really easily at the regular grocery stores now days!
But if you are like me, love internet shopping, here is the link for it!
Hope you guys can give this delicious Korean Fried Chicken Wings a try!! 😀Print

- Another large mixing bowl, combine 3/4 cup tempura powder and 3/4 cup cold water with a whisk.
- Heat frying oil in a large, thick bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium high heat (about 2 to 3 inches high from bottom of pot); reach 335 to 350 degrees.

- Remove sauce from heat and it shouldn’t reduced much. Taste if it’s not too salty for your taste. If it is salty, add a bit of water and mix.

Can you tell me where you got your cute little sauce pan , the aqua colored one with wooden handle?
I got it from IKEA. 🙂
Where did you buy your tempura mix from and mirin?
My local Asian market! 🙂 I’ve seen those two ingredients from regular local grocery stores at Asian/international food section! Even Walmart! 🙂

Hi! I was wondering what type of sauce you used? I tried making it with a different recipe but I used Knorr soy sauce. It didn’t taste the same as in restaurants lol.
You meant what type of soy sauce? I use Korean soy sauce for this recipe.
If there any replacement tempure flour at all my sister is celiac and can’t eat it
rice flour can be used as a substitute and contains no gluten!
Do you think this can be done in the air fryer with just the dusting of tempura powder on the chicken alone and then maybe spray with some oil?
YES! I don’t see why not!
Did you use Korean soy sauce? I’ve learned recently that Japanese, Chinese and Filipino soy sauce have different properties, and to use the right one for each recipe. I also heard Korean soy is similar to Japanese. I used Japanese soy sauce for Chinese recipes and they came out meh.
Yes for this recipe, I did use Korean brand soy sauce!
Thanks! I should’ve read your previous comments, because you already answered someone about it! Well I made these and they’re delicious!
