Spicy, bold, and slightly sweet, gochujang brings the flavour bomb in this meal and is the perfect pair with the tangy slaw and rice.
This is another one of those recipes that came about after trying something similar in a restaurant and thinking I want to try and make this. Not to my surprise, there are so many people that have had similar thoughts. This made it easy to pull a bunch of recipes together to make my own creation and meal. It might not be authentic Korean chicken, but it’s definitely worth a try and isn’t too hard to make!
Gochujang is a fermented chili paste that is made from red chili powder, rice and soy. It traditionally takes months to ferment and release all its amazing flavours. Luckily, it can be bought online or at Asian markets near you. If you have no way to purchase the paste, you could go without it and use dried chili powder and seasonings instead, but I can’t guarantee it’ll be the same.
