Fried Chicken Recipe with Cheese Dip
Love the chicken-and-cheese combo? You can make these sweet and savory boneless chicken chunks at home. Chicken is made even more irresistible when dipped in gooey cheese.
What Is Fried Chicken with Cheese Dip
This Korean fried chicken-inspired dish is a cross between a Korean fried chicken meal with a cheese fondue. We all know how obsessed Koreans are with fried chicken and cheese. This combo might just be the culmination of that obsession clashing together.
This chicken and cheese dish is basically boneless fried chicken bites cooked twice with a cheese dip. Cooking it twice matters and is the signature cooking process that differentiates Korean fried chicken from other fried chicken recipes. The crispy chicken pieces are tossed in a sweet and savory sauce sprinkled with sesame seeds and served with the gooey cheese dip.
It's important that this cheese sauce is extra gooey so mozzarella or other stretchy cheese is a main requirement of this cheese dip. Sure, you can use any kind of cheese you prefer but adding a bit of stretchy cheese to get that gooey, melty texture is really not a suggestion for you to pull this off right.
Prep this on a weekend-your family will thank you for it.
How To Serve Fried Chicken with Cheese Dip
This chicken and cheese dish needs to be served immediately because the cheese dip, once it gets cold, will no longer be stretchy and gooey. So when you make this, you need to time it so that the cheese is still hot as well as the chicken. Nobody wants unintentionally cold fried chicken, after all.
How To Cook Fried Chicken with Cheese Dip
All you need to make this recipe are a few ingredients. Season and fry your chicken chunks twice (Remember that this makes a difference!). Make the chicken sauce too but keep it separate from the chicken until right before you're ready to serve it. Set these two aside.
Make the cheese dip on your stovetop only before serving so it's still hot and gooey. Toss your chicken in the sauce and plate. Pour still hot cheese into a bowl and serve with the chicken for that perfect timing.
Tip To Make Delicious Fried Chicken with Cheese Dip
Fried chicken cooking tips are numerous but for this recipe, you need to remember a few things to make sure it's always delicious and the most important is this tip:
Season the chicken as well as the flour.
One of the sins of a cook is not seasoning their dish well. So be a good cook and avoid committing this cooking mistake: season the chicken as well as the flour. You'll not only have flavorful chicken bites with or without the sauce but you'll have flavorful crispy bits no matter what.
How To Store Fried Chicken with Cheese Dip
This has two parts so it's best to store these separately. Fried chicken is easy to store but to store it properly, you should store it only once it's cooled down. Still hot food will create condensation and will result in soggy food that will be more difficult to make crispy again when reheated. Then just wrap in foil or place in a container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and longer if frozen.
The cheese tip meanwhile is best wrapped in plastic wrap with the plastic pressed against the surface of the cheese sauce to prevent a skin from forming while in the refrigerator. Plus, it keeps mold at bay since pressing the plastic against the cheese squeezes excess air out.
