A taste of: Buttermilk Fried Chicken Bap with Korean Hot Sauce and Radish & Ginger Slaw
Ingredients for the Dredge:
• 200 g plain flour
• 100 g cornflour
• 30 g paprika
• 30 g chilli powder
• 20 g dried thyme
• 30 g garlic powder
• 30g salt
• 15g black pepper
Ingredients to make the Korean Hot Sauce: (approximation)
• 500ml Sriracha Hot Sauce
• 200 g Gochujang paste
• 100ml rice wine vinegar
• 100g finely crushed peanuts
• 50 ml golden syrup
• 50 ml soy sauce
• 30 ml sesame oil
Ingredients for the Summer Slaw:
• 150g red cabbage, finely shredded
• 150g green cabbage, finely shredded
• 150g white cabbage, finely shredded
• 75g grated carrot
• 75g grated mooli radish
• 1" fresh ginger, finely grated
• Rice wine vinegar and mayonnaise to blend.
1. Marinade boneless chicken thighs in fresh buttermilk overnight or for at least 8 hours.
2. Coat chicken evenly in the dredge mix. Fry in clean rapeseed oil at 150 degrees C for around 8-10mins, depending on thickness of pieces. Chicken should reach internal temp of 83 degrees C, probe with a meat thermometer.
3. For the sauce, combine ingredients in a large pan, slowly bring to a simmer, stirring frequently so the mixture does not catch. Cook out for ten minutes or so and let it cool before blending and transferring to jars or bottles.
4. Toast a Demi brioche bun, top with a generous portion of slaw. Place on 1 1/2 sliced thighs, and coat liberally with Korean Hot Sauce.
That's all folks! We hope you all enjoy! Make sure to tag #BarbourSummer in your creations this summer, we can’t wait to see them!
