Korean Spicy Chicken Stew Recipe
We didn't eat this spicy chicken stew growing up, but wish we did! On cold winter nights, this stew hits the spot. This is a chicken dish that is braised in a spicy red sauce mixture along with potatoes and onions.
It's the perfect comfort food to be scooped over rice. Warms our hands, belly, and heart.
In a small bowl make your sauce by mixing the hot pepper flakes, gochujang, soy sauce, minced garlic, brown sugar. Make sure it's thoroughly mixed, it should look like a paste.
In a large pot, place your chicken drumsticks, sauce mixture, and water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a medium simmer for about 20 minutes.
Place the chopped potatoes, chopped onions, sliced green chiles, half of chopped green onions into the pot for another 20 minutes, uncovered.
Chicken should be tender, potatoes cooked, and liquid slightly thickened. Once finished, remove from heat, place in dish and top with remaining chopped green onions.
Tip: If you can't handle spice, it's a good idea to start with a few slices of the green chilies while cooking and then wait a bit before trying it again.
