Keto Spicy Korean Chicken Wings Low Carb Recipe | Keto Vale

Keto Spicy Korean Chicken Wings

Korean Fried Chicken or jokingly KFC is one of the most popular dish in South Korea that literally most of people in Korea know how to cook. People also refer it as “huraideu-chikin” (양념 치킨) or Korean spicy fried chicken. To make this dish keto friendly, there are a few things we need to change.

Huraideu chicken is usually coated in “Gochujang” – a fermented Korean chili sauce that is sold in big packs in Asian food stores. The problem is that Gochujang doesn’t fit our keto diet because of having rice, rice syrup,  and cane sugar in the ingredient.

Some people might use Sriracha – a super popular and successful chili sauce brand that is found literally in most Asian restaurants, especially Vietnamese Pho restaurants. However, we find that sriracha also has sugar in the content.

If you follow strict keto, we recommend using a sugar-free and more keto-friendly low carb hot sauce such as this Frank’s RedHot. Its ingredients are cayenne red peppers, garlic powder, salt, water and distilled vinegar which makes it perfect for keto. Also, use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce.

Feel free to experiment with this recipe, since even Koreans themselves like to alter the sauce that covers their chicken, from having none and leaving just chewy meat, to soak it in soya sauce (coconut aminos in our case).

Keto Korean Chicken Wings

We use chicken wings that cut into wingettes and drumettes. You can try other cuts of chicken meat too.

Don’t be afraid to add some Asian cuisine to your ration, considering the rising popularity for ketogenic lifestyle, even traditional Asian restaurants in Chinatown are starting to have menus for keto eaters.

Best served alone with beverage, but will also be good with grilled vegetables, low carb salad or if you want to Koreanise your meal, eat this with some keto-friendly homemade Kimchi! Hey, if you have Korean friends, invite them over  for this meal, they will be impressed!
