Korean Chicken in Hot Chili Sauce

READY IN: 2hrs 55mins
Recipe by Vicarjane in Wester

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.

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.

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.
