Embarrassingly simple question for any meat-savvy cooks

APK_101 | Jan 30, 2013 12:37 PM

I'm going to surprise my husband by preparing Maangchi's recipe for Korean fried chicken this weekend:

I'm a vegetarian and not super handy in the kitchen with meat, so it really will be a surprise. :) My question is about what kind of chicken to buy. The recipe calls for 3 lb of "chicken chunks", but mentions that you could also use wings. I like the idea of using wings (seems Super Bowl appropriate), but we already have a big Costco bag of chicken tenders in the freezer and I also like the idea of using what we have.

Would chicken tenders work, say defrosted and halved? Or would it be worth it to track down wings? In the case of the latter, what would be the easiest (and least gross!) way to buy wings?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me!
