Food News: K-Pop Your Chicken with McCormick Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mix

Something new for the New Year...everybody loves Korean-style Fried Chicken, and now you can do it at home...very cool.

McCormick recently launched its line of Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mixes with an actual hands-on cooking demo at The Cookery Place. Quick and easy, now you can recreate and experience the flavors of Korean-style fried chicken at home, and there's nothing better than crisp fried chicken fresh off the fryer. The new line of McCormick Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mixes come in Soy Garlic, Bulgogi, Kimchi and Spicy variants, and here's the best part, each flavorful pack has no added MSG. Nice.  

Bloggers were invited to experience first hand how simple it is to prepare Korean-style fried chicken with the new McCormick Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mix.  Marisse Kho, McCormick Product Manager and Chef Min Jun welcome bloggers.

The facilities at The Cookery Place were great, with cooking stations for the participating bloggers. Some additional instructions from emcee Mark Suntay and final prepping, and we don our aprons for some serious frying... 

...and the bloggers prepare to K-Pop some fried chicken...

Each package comes with two packs, the batter mix and the sauce, all you need for a perfect Korean-style fried chicken. And it's really easy to prepare, with four simple steps: mix the batter, coat the chicken, deep-fry and shake, and you just K-popped your chicken. Cool. And in true K-Pop form, try shaking the chicken Gangnam-style...why not. 

Each pack is good for a half-kilo of chicken, roughly six to eight pieces of wings or assorted chicken cuts. Once fully coated, your chicken is ready for the fryer. The sizzle and aroma then fills the kitchen...

...and after ten to fifteen minutes, drain the chicken of excess oil and place in a container. Open the pack containing the sauce and pour directly on the chicken. And here's the fun part, simply close the lid and shake...

After each piece of chicken is coated with the sauce, give it another quick fry for that amazing double-fried crispness associated with Korean-style fried chicken. 

My personal favorite, McCormick Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mix Kimchi flavor, just the right level of heat for that cool kick...

...and paired with the special Kimchi Coleslaw from The Cookery Place...perfect. Sweet with a little heat, great with the Korean-style fried chicken.

For dessert, The Cookery Place offered an Asian-inspired treat, Mini Green Tea Cupcakes.

Moist, not too sweet with a nice subtle green tea flavor, a perfect ending to a cool Korean Fried Chicken dinner.

With McCormick Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mix. there's a flavor for everyone. If you enjoy a sweet and savory bite, go for the Soy Garlic and Bulgogi flavors, giving your chicken dish a distinct Korean twist. If you're looking for a little more kick, go for the Kimchi and Spicy variants, my personal favorites...and have a cold beer ready.

Cool Korean-style fried chicken in minutes, at home anytime you feel the urge for some crisp and flavorful chicken. Definitely a must try, McCormick has another winner here. Special thanks to Beth Supetran, Group Product Manager; Marisse Kho, Product Manager; and Monette Quebral, Innovations Manager from McCormick and Rhenee Sy of The Cookery Place for an awesome I deep-fry another batch...
