Spicy Thymes: A Little Bit Sweet, A Little Bit Heat

Our newest AllSpicer, Autumn, is a fan of tasty meals with easy clean up.  Her hot and sweet Gochujang  Chicken is tasty and meets the easy clean-up requirement – she serves it right out of the skillet!

“I’m a fan of hugely simple recipes I can tweak,” says Autumn.  For this simple recipe, you’ll need the following:

Mix together gochujang, honey, red pepper flakes, gochugaru, black pepper and smoked sea salt. Pour mixture over the chicken and marinate for at least an hour. Autumn recommends using a baggie so you can “squish” it all together. Cook in a hot skillet with 1-2 T of roasted sesame oil until chicken is done. Serve solo, over rice, or like Autumn did, with a nice cheese fondu for dipping.

This basic recipe can be tweaked to add all sorts of things – mushrooms, green onion, etc. – really whatever you like!  You can also swap out sesame oil for something like Cayenne Infused Olive Oil or Chipotle Olive Oil.
