The sweet and spicy flavors of this dish echo Korean fried chicken wings, but without the hassle of deep frying. Look for gochujang, a sweet and spicy Korean red pepper paste, in the International aisle of many grocery stores, at an Asian market, and online. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Julia Lee.


  • 2 green onions
  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger (1/2 inch is 1 Tbsp. minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tbsp. gochujang (sweet and spicy Korean red pepper paste; buy at grocery stores, Asian markets, and online)
  • 2 Tbsp. mirin
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds

    This recipe turned out amazing!! I followed it exactly except my rice vinegar wasn't seasoned. :) I also put mine on top of rice!

    I had to half the gochujang and mix this with rice but it turned out great. Would definitely make it again, looking forward to the leftovers.

    It was good, but spicier than I imagined that it would be. I liked it more than my family did. My chicken didn’t get very brown or crispy, despite following the video. I would eat it again as part of a family style meal.

    Delicious! So good, I browned the chicken for slightly longer to get a more crispy texture. Next time I’m going to make extra sauce because it is amazing!

    Realizing in the last moment that i dont have any Gochujang and used red pesto instead. Turned out it wasn't such a bad ideea.

    It was so delicious!!! The only thing I did different was add a little bit more cornstarch to thicken it up some. We ate it all! So yummy!

    Excellent flavor! I might cut the goguchang in half because it’s pretty spicy.

    really good! needs more sauce though. and to actually feed 4 people instead of two, i suggest doubling the recipe

    Salty. Going to cut down on salt and make with vegetables.

    Delicious! 5 kids, and 3 adults all loved it. i served it on top of white rice. i couldn't find gochujang at the 2 nearest stores, so i substituted with Sambal that i thickened with corn starch, so mine came out pretty spicy, but ordered some gochujang, and will give it a go again for sure!

    if you like spicy leave it alone otherwise you can make it your own i added a tsp of ginger to the pan a tsp of cornstarch and and pineapple juice maybe about a 1/3 to 1/2 cap really good
