A few nights ago, we went out for some delicious Korean fried chicken with a few friends in downtown Boston and had an amazing night! We were starving, so naturally our eyes were much bigger than our stomachs and we ended up ordering an abundance of appetizers, entrees and also 36 jumbo wings for just 5 people! Oops. We ordered a variety of flavors but the spicy chicken was a tad surprisingly spicy for the group so no one else was brave enough for it, except for me! That meant we were tasked with taking the spicy chicken leftovers and I was left with the homework to do something with it at home.
Korean Fried Chicken is great; deliciously crispy and crunchy fried. Inevitably the next day, it’s just not as good on it’s own. What makes it as good as yesterday? Fried chicken over rice. This is a super simple dish that brings the flavors of the fried chicken back out but doesn’t rely on the crispy texture for the deliciousness. And it lets you make a second (or third) meal out of chicken! My husband has now claimed that he will always be the one to grab leftover chicken!
