    Overall, I was quite pleased. I substituted leg and thigh meat because I had it in stock. I think it would be better with breast meat. Next time, I think I will add more honey and dial back on the red pepper flakes.

    Very tasty. I coated the chicken in ginger powder and chilli flakes but used much less than in recipe but was still very hot. Also cooked finely chopped shallots and pressed garlic in the oil before adding the chicken to finish offf.

    A new favorite in our house. Very easy and tasty! We serve it over rice with broccoli.

    This was really good. My nine year old told me that he wants me to make it again, a lot. I also liked it. I had the bag of red peppers from H-mart. It was the first time I used it. So much fun. This is a good recipe to let kids participate. The pounding, and the cooking, especially if you use a wok is pretty kid friendly. I have a nine year old boy, and we had fun.

    We added cornstarch to the chicken to brown it better with the pepper which we reduced as it was our first try The sauce did not thicken So we added cornstarch until it got sticky Not a large amount Will defiantly make again

    Was good! Next time I may double the sauce though. I did add some minced garlic to the dish, I love garlic. I will be making this again as I love quick meals that don't make a mess in the kitchen.

    I enjoyed the chicken my son thought it was a little spicy but good. I added some minced garlic to the sauce when I was cooking it and I did sauté some onions after taking the chicken out of the pot and added it to the dish.

    A little too spicy, but still delicious! I suggest adding a bit more honey and some garlic as well :)

    Way too spicy, burning my lips and tongue, my husband could not even finish it. It did not come out sticky either However, I really liked the flavor overall So I will cook it again, but significantly reduce red pepper flakes and try to figure out how to make it sticky

    Used lemon juice instead of vinegar because I didn’t have any. Turned out great

    Mine didn’t come out sticky. It tasted good but I wanted the sticky coating! Any suggestions?

    This was okay. I made and followed the instructions but didn’t care for the glaze. Good thing I went to the Korean isle of my grocery store and picked up Sweet Chili sauce and it was phenomenal over brown rice. Hubby really enjoyed!!!

    Very easy to make, turned out delicious. I added baby carrots to the chicken (through all the steps) and I recommend doing that.

    Easy to make! Delicious! Served it over rice. I substituted olive oil for the grape seed, My family loved it. I will make it again.
    the korean sticky chicken was excellent. I used chicken thighs and baked it in the oven. The meat was so tender it fell off the bone and the skin was nice and crispy. The flavour was awesome, would definetly make it again.

    I love this recipe. I make it exactly as written and serve it with rice, a cucumber pickle (thinly sliced, with rice vinegar, salt and a tad sugar) and a steamed vegetable. Yummly!
