Spicy Chicken Bokkeum Tang

Since I have a love/infatuation with Korean food, I decided to make a spicy braised chicken dish that is a popular Korean dish,  that I saw on the YouTube channel of Aeris Kitchen. She makes AWESOME Korean traditional dishes, and I have made several of them at my home, they are certifiably dee-lishus! O_o makes me hungry thinking about this recipe! I made this dish and as a side I made white rice and paired it with my homemade kimchi, also a recipe found on her channel!

Spicy food is my favorite, Korean food has the spice you need! It’s Salty, Sweet, Crunchy, Soft the flavors of Korean food will make anyone want to come back for more! Korean food consists of a meat dish, soup, rice and banchan, which is little vegetable and meet side dishes … like kimchi, pickled radish, seasoned dried squid, steamed or fried egg lots of things and all are tasty and unique in flavor! If you ever get the chance to try Korean food, jump at the chance, its a great experience!

Well lets start!!!!

Main Ingredients

  • 1 Whole Chicken, (i used chicken chicken thighs, you can use any cut of chicken you want!)
  • 2 Cups Onion
  • 2 Cups Potato
  • 1 Cup Carrot (i didn’t have any carrots!)
  • 3 Green Onions
  • 1-2 Hot Peppers (Optional, I used 1 ghost chili)
  • 1½ Cup Water

For Chicken

  • 1 Tbsp Cooking Wine
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ⅛ tsp Black Pepper Powder

Sauce Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp Red Pepper Paste
  • 1 Tbsp Red Pepper Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • ½ Tbsp Cooking Wine
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar ( i used truvia, a sugar substitute)
  • 1 Tbsp Honey or Corn Syrup (i used honey)
  • 2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 Pinch Black Pepper Powder

Instructions

Cut the chicken into 2×2 inch pieces. Don’t remove the skin, fat, or bones because that gives it good flavor.
Marinate the chicken with 1 Tbsp of cooking wine, ¼ tsp of salt, and ⅛ tsp of black pepper powder for at least 10 minutes.
Combine 5 Tbsp of red pepper paste, 3 Tbsp of red pepper powder, 2 Tbsp of soy sauce, ½ Tbsp of cooking wine, 1 Tbsp of sugar, 1 Tbsp of corn syrup, 2 Tbsp of minced garlic, 1 tsp of sesame seeds, 1 tsp of sesame oil, and 1 pinch of black pepper powder.
Mix the ingredients.
Cut 2 cups of onions, 2 cups of potatoes, 1 cup of carrots, 3 green onions, and 1 or 2 hot peppers into big chunk (1 or 1½ inch cubes).
Place the chicken in a big pan.
Add the potatoes, onions, and carrots on top of the chicken.
Pour the sauce on top.
Then pour 1½ cup of water on it.
While it is cooking, occasionally stir it so that all of the ingredients get covered with the sauce. Cook it for 30 to 35 minutes on high, or until the chicken and potatoes are completely cooked.
Reduce the temperature to low and add the green onions along with the hot peppers. Cook 2 more minutes and then turn off the heat. If you don’t want your food too spicy, skip the hot peppers.
