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

    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!

    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!

    It tasted like food from a restaurant! I had to replace the mirin for red wine vinegar but it was still delicious!

    It was really good! Wayyy too spicy for me but my men folks loved it. I served it with rice and sautéed broccoli, red pepper, and mushrooms with a little soy sauce.

    Was very popular at dinner. Used less Gochujang but the kick it gives is awesome.

    Great meal that’s easy for even a beginner.

    Turned out great. I'd recommend the dropping the amount of gochujang if your averse to spicy food. 1 Tbsp = mild but warm 2 Tbsp = medium 3 Tbsp = hot I did 2 Tbsp and it was spicy but not overwhelming. 3 would have been too much for us.

    it is very easy to make. Rice is a good combination.
