[Air Fried] Korean Style Fried Chicken Drumsticks

Korean style fried chicken has been such a hit dish in the recent years, though I’ve never had the urge to try it. Then my cooking inspiration provider Ms. Claudia Lee Kimura suggested this, and now, I can’t get enough of it! Even when I have to cook separately for myself and the kids (as they cannot take the heat), it’s all worth it!! They are just finger lickin’ good!!! 

Chicken Drumsticks10 Pieces
[MARINATE] Salt1 Teaspoon
[MARINATE] Ground Black Pepper½ Teaspoon
[MARINATE] Grated Ginger1 Tablespoon
Cornstarch6 Tablespoons
[SAUCE] Light Brown Sugar6 Tablespoons
[SAUCE] Gochujang2 Tablespoons
[SAUCE] Soy Sauce2 Tablespoons
[SAUCE] Roasted Sesame Oil2 Teaspoons
[SAUCE] Grated Ginger1 Teaspoon
[SAUCE] Grated Garlic1 Teaspoon
[SAUCE] White Sesame Seeds1 Tablespoon


  1. In a container, combine the chicken drumsticks with the [MARINATE] ingredients. Then coat them with cornstarch and set aside for about 15 minutes.
  2. Place drumsticks into the Air Fryer, lightly spray them with oil, and cook at 380F/200C for around 30 minutes until meat is thoroughly cooked through.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine all the [SAUCE] ingredients and mix well.
  4. When the drumsticks are done, pour the [SAUCE] mixture into a frying pan and cook under medium-low heat. When it began to sizzle, add the drumsticks into the pan and stir until they are completely coated with the sauce and serve immediately.
  5. DŌZO!

NOTE: Take out the Air Fryer basket from time to time to check the cooking status of the wings and give it a shake to cook the wings more even.
