If you’re a foodie or love a good fried chicken, you’ve probably heard of Korean Fried Chicken. You may have heard that it is consistently crispy, juicy and flavorful. You may have heard that you can order it with some pretty crazy-sounding but delicious sauces. You may have even heard that it takes regular fried chicken to another level!


But why exactly is Korean Fried Chicken so good, and what makes it different from your regular fried chicken? It comes down to 4 key factors: 


1) The Texture, 

2) The Seasonings, 

3) The Marinade, and 

4) The Side Dishes!


Here at CM Chicken in Glenview, we're ready to dish on how these four key factors come together to create our crunchy, juicy, addictively delicious Korean Fried Chicken!

1) The Texture

Korean Fried Chicken is well known for its incredibly satisfying crunchy exterior, while still remaining perfectly cooked and exceptionally tender inside. The secret behind our mouthwatering crunchy-juicy combo is that we double-fry our chicken! We first fry our chicken at a lower temperature to cook the meat thoroughly, and then fry it a second time at a higher temperature to get the batter beautifully golden and crispy. Our double-frying process results in an ultra-crunchy exterior, while keeping the meat inside delectably juicy and tender.

2) The Seasonings

Korean food wholeheartedly embraces bold and impactful flavors, and our fried chicken is no different! Take the classic yangnyeom sauce - first introduced in Daegu, South Korea in 1982, and still a beloved and incredibly popular Korean Fried Chicken sauce today! Yangnyeom is a sticky, sweet and spicy sauce that was specifically and intentionally developed to complement crunchy Korean fried chicken, and is made with bold seasonings like gochujang (the famous Korean chili paste), garlic, ginger, soy sauce and sugar. Other popular sauces and seasonings for Korean fried chicken also celebrate bold and memorable flavors, like soy garlic, curry, "fire" sauces (extra hot and spicy!), honey garlic, and much more!


Here at CM Chicken, we've developed a few proprietary KFC seasonings of our own, like our signature Snow Onion Chicken! We pile julienne-sliced sweet onion high on top of our chicken with a creamy snow sauce. The sweet-zesty-zip of the onions is tempered by the creamy sauce, and they combine to beautifully complement our crunchy-juicy fried chicken.



3) The Marinade 

Before the chicken is battered, fried, seasoned or sauced, Korean fried chicken is often marinated in a mixture of buttermilk, spices, and sometimes fruit juice. This important marination step infuses flavor and tenderizes the meat, ensuring that every single bite of chicken is tender and bursting with flavor.

4) The Side Dishes

Any fan of Korean food knows that Koreans love their side dishes (aka banchan), and our fried chicken is no exception. Fried chicken in Korea is typically served with sides like pickled white radish, spicy rice cakes (tteokbokki), or fries. The combination of crispy-tender chicken, and side dishes like crunchy-tangy radish, spicy-chewy rice cakes, and golden-fried potatoes makes for a very stimulating, addictive blend of sensations, textures and flavors that you won't soon forget!



So there you have it! The secret to the perfect Korean Fried Chicken lies in its unique texture, seasonings, marinades and side dishes. We hope you come to experience and fall in love with delicious Korean Fried Chicken yourself, here at CM Chicken in Glenview!
