Marinated chicken cooked with gochu jang (korean red pepper paste) available at asian markets. I found this recipe on the internet @ myEthnicWorld.com and we love it. I make it regularly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the chicken into 3-inch pieces.
  2. Divide the wings.
  3. Mix the chicken with the sugar and marinate for an hour.
  4. (I used boneless breast and a Zip-Lock bag works well)
  5. Mix together the other seasonings (all but the water) and marinate for another hour or more.
  6. Pour the water into a pan and bring to a boil. Add the chicken and the marinade and simmer, covered, for 1/2 hour over low heat, stirring occasionally. This will be enough to cook the chicken and evaporate most of the liquid.
  7. Serve warm with rice, salads, and kimchi.

I've love this dish. I use either chicken legs or chicken thighs (skin removed) and I add baby carrots instead of the sugar and sometimes throw in a couple small zucchini.
