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

    This was an excellent recipe, easy to make. chicken was tender. I did reduce the amount of Korean spice paste. I used 2/3 of what the recipe called for and replaced it with ketchup. my family really loved it.

    Delicious, I have made this twice and added siracha the second time which adds a little spice. Will make again for sure.

    The sauce is flavorful enough that it needs a good jasmine rice and side plate of Asian style stir-fried veggies.

    It came out really good, I substituted mirin with rice vinegar and sugar because I didn't have any. It still turned out great, will make again
    Easy to follow, fantastic meal. Husband loved it. Definitely has a nice medium heat - not too overwhelming. Will become a meal I definitely will make again!

    Really tasty! I tried to follow the recipe but I didn't have almost anything for the sauce. I completely improvised with that part, but it still turned out really good!

    This was great!! Added a third garlic clove and make sure the chicken was crispy vs just browned. This will be a regular meal for us

    Very good, feels like I got Chinese food from my favorite place. The only thing I recommend is not letting the sauce to boil for so long as I boiled out too much of the water in the sauce

    Mine was a bit lighter so I doubled the sauce. I also made a side of green beans to balance the meal. Chicken was a little dry but that may have been my fault for not paying attention to the pan lol. Still a good recipe
