Kenji has long been a fan of pickle-brined fried chicken sandwiches—brining chicken thighs in dill pickle juice before dredging and frying them results in juicy, flavor-packed chicken. So he wondered if he could use the same technique with the brine from a different type of pickle: kimchi. The answer is yes, and the results are fantastic!
This recipe combines kimchi-brined fried chicken with a spicy crust and vinegary hot sauce, marrying some of my favorite elements from both Korean fried chicken and Nashville-style hot chicken. It's awesome on a toasted potato bun, and arguably even better paired with Stella's Black Sesame Buttermilk Biscuits.
