Korean Fried Chicken

I love making quick meals that my kids are happy with, so that I can give them something yummy to eat then take some time out to spend with them. Whether it’s homework, watching a movie or even just chatting away while playing UNO, I make sure I give them some undivided attention every day. So making meals that require less time, is just one of my top priorities. Once that is out of the way, I am relaxed. This Korean fried chicken was ready in 20 minutes and the best part was, I made some rice to go with it at the same time. That was also ready in no time, so not much stress there.
