Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

You can never have too many main course recipes, so give Korean Candy Chicken a try. For $2.36 per serving, this recipe covers 30% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. This recipe makes 6 servings with 672 calories, 57g of protein, and 9g of fat each. 1 person has made this recipe and would make it again. If you have chicken breasts, eggs, flour, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. To use up the sesame seeds you could follow this main course with the Sesame Banana Bread as a dessert. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 45 minutes. It is a good option if you're following a dairy free diet. This recipe is typical of Korean cuisine. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 72%. This score is good. Similar recipes include Char-grilled Korean Style BBQ Pork Chops and Artisan Korean Meat Giveaway, Grilled Korean BBQ Short Rib Dogs w/Sweet Peach Relish + Spicy Korean Slaw, and Korean Chicken.

Korean works really well with Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. The Lubanzi Chenin Blanc with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 16 dollars per bottle.

Lubanzi Chenin Blanc

The 2018 Lubanzi Chenin Blanc is drawn from a blend of older, dry farmed bush vines & younger, drip irrigated vines. Its deep straw color points towards both ripe freshness & complexity. The nose brings tropical & stone fruits first, eliciting thoughts of tangerine & lychee. The palate is round and fleshy, pushing forward lychee again, along with white peach, apricot & green apple, all carried by a touch of elevated acidity. There is brightness & a slight hint of freshly baked bread throughout. The finish is long, soft & affectionate.

Instructions

  1. In a pan, pour about two inches of oil and heat on medium heat till hot.
  2. Cut chicken on the diagonal into thick strips, about two inches wide.
  3. In a bowl, beat eggs.
  4. In another container, place flour.
  5. Coat chicken strips in egg mixture first, then generously pat with flour, covering all sides. I will often give it a couple of coatings. There should be a thick layer of batter on the chicken pieces.
  6. When oil is hot, fry chicken pieces till golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
  7. Remove chicken, and let rest on a paper towel to drain the oil.
  8. To make candy sauce, place soy sauce and sugar in a bowl and mix together, about 30 seconds.
  9. The sugar will not completely dissolve, but the mixture should be thick, and not grainy.
  10. Add sesame seeds and mix to incorporate.
  11. Dip chicken in sauce, covering all sides.
  12. Repeat, till all pieces are covered.
  13. Serve with rice, drizzle remain sauce over chicken.
  14. Garnish with sliced scallions.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • Here is an easy health swap: substitute brown rice for white rice. Brown rice is a whole grain, while white rice is brown rice stripped of some of its parts and much of its fiber and other nutrients. It is important to note, however, that all rice types raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation. In fact, if it seems like it would work in the recipe, the best option would probably be so-called cauliflower rice.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.
