Korean Chicken Skewers with gochujang marinade
Inspired by Korean barbecue, Korean Chicken Skewers feature chunks of chicken soaked in a quick, taste bud-rocking marinade.
Test Kitchen Tip
If you’re not partial to chicken thighs, substitute with chicken breasts. But, because they’re leaner, they’ll cook a little more quickly
Preheat double-burner grill pan or grill over medium-high; brush pan with oil.
Whisk together gochujang, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, sugar, and oil for the marinade.
Toss chicken with marinade, then thread onto skewers.
Grill skewers until chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
Serve chicken skewers with rice, gochujang, and Korean Quick-Pickled Vegetables.
There’s no good substitute for gochujang. Look for it in the ethnic section of your local or Asian market, or on Amazon.
To ensure the chicken cooks quickly and evenly, don’t crowd the skewers too tightly.
The skewers cook quickly on a hot grill. A good indicator the chicken is ready to flip is when it’s charred.
