Spicy Gochujang Stir-Fried Chicken

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes


  • 0.8 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tbsp gochujang
  • 3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • roasted sesame seeds for topping
  • green onions for topping


  • In a bowl, combine the gochujang, low-sodium soy sauce, water, brown sugar, sesame oil, and minced garlic and mix well. Set aside.
  • Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl. Add 5 tablespoons of the gochujang mixture into the bowl of chicken and combine well. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Heat the canola oil on a large pan over medium heat. Add in the marinated chicken and cook for about 5 minutes, stir-frying the chicken pieces once in a while to cook each side of the chicken pieces. Increase the heat to high and add in the rest of the gochujang sauce mixture. Stir-fry for about 3-5 more minutes until the sauce is thicker and the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Remove from heat.
  • Serve in a serving bowl and top with roasted sesame seeds and green onions.
