Today, Park City’s Hearth and Hill is sharing its recipe for Korean Fried Chicken. Chef Jordan Harvey has outlined the steps to making this entree, including how to make the seasoned maple syrup, Kim Jong Chicken Sauce, the dredge, and the potato scallion waffles. When we dined in this restaurant last January, Ira sampled the dish and enjoyed the combination of flavors. Here’s a link to my story, First-timer’s Guide to Park City.
