When it comes to Korean food, I am sure you love Korean BBQ such as Korean BBQ chicken, or kalbi (BBQ short ribs). I love chicken and always love the spicy Korean-style chicken.
How Do You Make Korean Chicken?
This Spicy Korean Chicken recipe is an easy adaptation from Korean BBQ Chicken. It has lesser ingredients in the marinade, and can be grilled outdoor (perfect for summer), baked in the oven, or just pan-fried on a skillet or pan.
It’s so simple and easy and can be prepared all year long.
Spicy Korean Chicken Sauce
This recipe is inspired by my favorite Korean takeout joint. The spicy Korean chicken sauce is made with gochujang, or Korean chili paste, which is the building block of many Korean recipes.
It’s mildly spicy but makes the chicken so much more flavorful and appetizing.
Korean ingredients are very easy to get these days. You can find them at Asian stores, Korean stores, or in the international aisle of your regular supermarket or buy them online from at Amazon.
Buy a bucket of gochujang, marinate a bunch of this Korean Chicken, dig in and enjoy the amazing great taste of Korean food!
Serve the chicken on top of steamed rice, with some boiled vegetables such as broccoli and you have a complete and utterly delicious meal. Enjoy!
