My first post here so i thought i would contribute a little.
This is my version of a Korean family favorite( My ex wives Korean family at least).
This is a spicy chicken meal served with rice. I dont think i have met anyone yet that has tried it and didnt ask for more or how to make it.
1 whole chicken
1 cup Hot Pepper Paste (Gochujang)
5 Cups Water
3-4 Tbsp Sesame Oil (To Your Taste, I like about 6)
4-6 Cloves Garlic (Chopped)
1 Large Onion (Chopped)
1/2 Cup Red Pepper Flakes (Korean Chili Powder)
1/4 Cup Korean Corn Syrup (Any corn Syrup will do, or use about 5 Tbsp regular Sugar)
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
5 or 6 Green Onions (Chopped)
3-6 Fresh Peppers (Depending how hot you like it)
Put all the ingredients into a pot with the water except the chicken. Turn on the heat, stir to combine, and bring to a high simmer. Add the whole chicken, cover, reduce heat to low, and slow simmer for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours stirring occasionally. Remove the lid for the last 30 minutes of cooking so the sauce will thicken slightly.
Serve with plain good sticky rice and pleanty or your favorite Kimchi and pour pleanty of sauce onto your rice. Super tasty !!
If you like less heat dont pour the sauce onto your rice or cut back on the pepper powder. This dish was meant to be spicy and its wonderfull that way. But i also like things VERY spicy.
Dunno how truly Korean this dish is but its really good and the only people i have ever seen make it was my Ex mother in law that was. Hopefully there is something that it came from down the line lol.
