Sweet And Spicy Korean Chicken - 15 Minute Recipe

A little bit spicy and a little bit sweet. This Korean chicken dish is one I grew up on. My mother always added potatoes and chiles but you can add in whatever you like. This brings me to the point of how versatile this dish is. Don't like heat? Don't like sweet? You can add in or scale back each ingredient to adjust this to your taste. In the end, it's still succulent, savory and delicious. Added bonus? The entire dish can be prepared in just 15 minutes!


Korean red pepper paste 1 Tablespoon
Toasted sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
Honey 1 Teaspoon
Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm)
Grated ginger 1 Teaspoon
Chicken quarters 2



1. In a medium sized bowl, combine the pepper paste, sesame oil, honey, garlic and ginger.

2. Massage the chicken into the sauce/marinade. Let sit for 15 minutes on the counter.

3. In a frying pan glazed with tb sesame oil, cook the marinated chicken.


4. Serve over rice and garnish as desired.
