    5 stars. I base everything on whether my kids will eat it. They did. They even ate the leftovers. This is a mildly spicy dish so it will depend on toletance. Will be adding to the remake roster.

    It was great. Easy to make. But it isn’t a right away meal because you have to let it set in the fridge. Otherwise it’s great.

    Not bad... recipe allows you to modify sweet or spiciness as needed. Adding it to our family dinner menu.

    This is THE best Korean recipe I have tried on Yumly. No modifications or adjustments, just pure delicious.

    Ended up adding a bit more honey but other than that it was so so good.

    I think the soy sauce is a bit too much and might reduce to 1.5 tbsp to reduce saltiness. Otherwise good with rice and stir fry veggies.

    chicken my kids loved and asked for seconds! I used thighs
    I only marinated it for 30 min and it was amazing. Next time I might cut back on the gochujang because it was too spicy for my son.

    You definitely get the best flavor if you marinate it overnight. It's still really good if you don't have the time for that though!

    Delicious, have made a couple times now and tastes good. Have also attempted cooking with one Tbs of sweet soy sauce in substitute for one Tbs of soy sauce and worked out well. Something is just a little overpowering which is why I don’t rate 5 stars, still perfecting it.

    Came out amazing. Used almost 2lbs of chicken so had to mess with the amounts a tad but overall very tasty made with white/sticky rice. Perfect Asian zing!

    Good and fast way to cook chicken. I only marinated 1/2 hour. Still tasted good

    Delicious! Follow the directions to the T and you’re golden. I used regular chili paste instead of the specific one the recipe asked for and it still turned out great. Easy too!

    One serving was less chicken that I thought it would be. I would recommend increasing it by 1.5x. Also, despite the spiciness of gochujang, the chicken was not very spicy, more smokey as another commenter suggested. Tastes great with rice and mixed vegetables!

    Very good. Made exactly as shown. The chicken didn’t caramelize but was still very tasty. Served with red peppers and naan. Not too spicy at all the Korean chili paste was more Smokey than spicy
