Easy Korean Sticky Chicken

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

    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!

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