Korea has invaded the Philippines indeed. Aside from Korean dramas to music, we Filipino are also influenced by Korean food. I have come to appreciate kimbap, samgyupsal, and mandu, but what really became popular is the Korean Fried Chicken.
We have enjoyed Korean Fried Chicken from restaurants like Bon Chon and Clucky's, but we can now enjoy Korean Fried Chicken at home through McCormick Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mixes.
I was invited by McCormick (through KC of Spreadsomeawesome) to experience how easy cooking Korean Fried Chicken at its launch at The Cookery Place.
The Cookery Place is a venue for recreational cooking that also caters to private events and cooking lessons. We were divided into small groups for this demo with Chef Min Jun.
Cooking Korean Fried Chicken
1. Dilute the batter mix in 60 mL water
2. Coat 1/2 kilo of chicken and deep fry
3. Place fried chicken in a container, pour Korean Fried Chicken sauce directly
4. Seal the lid and SHAKE!

After the cooking demo, we were served Korean Fried Chicken in 4 flavors: Soy Garlic, Kimchi, Bulgogi, and Spicy.
We were also served Japchae, Kimchi Coleslaw, and Green Tea Cupcake with Red Bean Icing with the chicken.

I personally like the Soy Garlic flavor, which has the right amount of sweetness. I like Kimchi and Bulgogi too, and Spicy just kicked me in the gut that I needed to drink lots of water.
McCormick Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mixes are available at supermarkets and groceries. A pack is good for a half kilo of chicken. Suggested retail price is Php 38.85
Thanks to McCormick for having us.
PS. Kudos to Mark for being a very entertaining host! :)
