This is a delicious way to prepare chicken. The chilies, mushrooms and Korean gochujang add a wonderful depth of flavor that takes braised chicken to a whole new level.

It's a great main dish. The chicken is cooked in a pan sauce, so it's somewhat like a stew in that it can be served over (or along side) steamed white rice to make the pan sauce go a long way.

How to Make Korean Braised Chicken with Mushrooms


  1. Rinse chicken pieces, pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy-duty skillet over medium heat. Sear chicken in the hot oil until lightly browned on all sides. Transfer chicken to a platter.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Add additional oil to skillet if necessary. Add shallots, ginger, garlic and poblano chilies to skillet and sauté on low until shallots are just starting to change color. Stir in the cumin, pepper, salt, and mushrooms, and continue cooking until mushrooms are soft.
  4. Stir in the gochujang, wine (or sake) and rice vinegar, and stir well.
  5. Keep heat on low. Place chicken in the skillet, skin side up. As you add each piece of chicken, thoroughly baste it with the pan sauce. Cover pan, and simmer chicken for 30 minutes. Garnish with green onion, and serve immediately.
