My husband said he wanted some spicy,saucy chicken,but not tomatoey. I checked out some UTube videos and saw this recipe,I know he loves hot food but 1/4 c of crush red pepper flakes?? Yowl! I think that's way to spicy even for him,I'm going to put maybe a tablespoon,with all that other hotness,I think that will be spicy enough.I don't think he's eaten Korean food before but I'm going to try.Sometimes he likes to challenge me! Another change I'm going to make is I'm going to brown the chicken,then add the sauce and boil,I think the chicken will be more flavorful,not just hot.
