I was shopping at a local Asian market where a super nice lady named Leika shared this recipe. If you love spicy asian food you HAVE to try Gochujang Chicken! Gochujang is a uniquely flavored korean red pepper paste that will make your taste buds smile and your nose run. Not feeling chicken? You can also use beef or pork instead. Read on!
Start out by cooking 1–2 cups of rice. If you don't have a rice maker, you should definitely get one! For 1 cup rice use 1 3/4 water, and for 2 cups rice, use 3 3/4 water. The rice will come out perfect every time!
Next, cut the chicken into smaller, bite-size pieces.
Heat a pan over medium heat and add 1–2 tbsp of cooking oil.
Add chicken and season with 1tbsp of LKK powder, garlic and onion powder. Cook until chicken is almost done. (Should be starting to brown.)
Add the red + yellow bell peppers, chopped green onions and 2tbsp of gochujang (only add 1tbsp if you want to play it safe).
Mix up well, turn the heat down and simmer for about 3 minutes.
Optionally, you can also add some broccoli to the mix while it simmers. I prefer this since the green complements the red nicely and because broccoli is good for you!
Serve over rice and enjoy!
If you're looking for an extra side to go with this meal, I recommend some miso soup. For dessert, this pairs well with some homemade green tea ice cream!
