KFC Kimchi Biscuit




South meets East meets cheese. Perfect for mornings after late nights, brunches, lunches, or dinners on days ending with -y. Crunchy fried chicken, melty cheese, and spicy kimchi coming together perfectly between fluffy and buttery biscuits.

 

Large bowl

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs

2 tablespoons gojuchang or your favorite chili paste

1/2 tablespoon tomato paste

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Medium bowl

1 cup or so of potato starch

A few dashes of salt

A few dashes of black pepper

A few dashes of garlic powder

A few dashes of onion powder


On the sidelines

Mile High Butter Biscuits

Jar of good kimchi

Cheddar jack cheese, sliced

Vegetable oil, for frying

 

1

In a large bowl, combine the chicken thighs and seasonings. Toss to thoroughly coat the chicken, cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the fridge for an hour.


2

Whisk together the potato starch and seasonings.


3

Fill a large, deep pot with a few inches of vegetable oil. Over medium heat, bring the oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a plate with a few paper towels and place near the pot.


4

Remove the marinated chicken from the fridge and working piece by piece, toss each thigh in the seasoned potato starch. Once all thighs are coated, let the chicken rest for a few minutes.


5

Once the oil reaches 350 degrees F, use tongs to carefully place each thigh into the pot. Fry the chicken until barely golden brown while flipping at least once- about 3-4 minutes. Remove and let rest on the paper towel-lined plate.


6

Increase the temperature of the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Once at temp, fry the chicken for another minute or so until the crust is a deep golden brown. Remove and let cool on a wire rack if you have one or the paper towel-lined plate.


7

Split the biscuits in half and place a thigh on each. Top with a slice (or if you're like me, two slices) of cheese and a heaping spoonful of kimchi. Finish with the top half of the biscuit.
