How to Make Chicken in a Hot Chili Sauce


  1. Cut the chicken into 3-inch pieces. Divide the wings.
  2. Mix the chicken parts with the sugar and marinate for 1 hour or more (the sugar is a tenderizer).
  3. Mix together all the other seasonings -- garlic, scallion, ginger, soy sauce, gochu jang, sesame oil and sesame seeds. Mix well, add to the chicken, and marinate for another hour.
  4. Pour the 1/2 cup of water into a pan and bring to a boil.
  5. Add the chicken and marinade and simmer, covered, over low heat for about 1/2 hour, which is enough to cook the chicken and evaporate nearly all the liquid. Stir the mixture once or twice during this process.
  6. Serve warm with rice, salads and kimchi.
