Dak Cochujang Bokeum

Dak Gochujang Bokeum (Chicken in Hot Chili Sauce)


2 lbs. chicken drumsticks (i remove the skin)
5TB sugar
1TB garlic, minced
1 scallion, chopped
1 TB fresh ginger, minced
2TB soy sauce
5TB gochu jang
2TB sesame oil
2TB toasted sesame seeds
1/2 C water


* Mix chicken drumsticks with sugar and marinate 1 hour or more (the sugar is a tenderizer).

* Mix together all the other seasonings - garlic, scallions, ginger, soy sauce, gochu jang, sesame oil and sesame seeds. Mix well, add to chicken and marinate for an hour or more. I use a big ziploc bag for ease. ( I often marinate it overnight or in the morning before I go to work).

* Pour the 1/2 C water into a pot and bring to a boil. Add the chicken and marinade and simmer, covered, over low heat for about 1/2 hour, which should be enough to cook the chicken and evaporate nearly all the liquid. Stir mixture once or twice during this process.
