What the heck is Gochujang?!
A staple in Korean cooking, gochujang is a spicy, sweet, umami pepper paste that is made from chile flakes, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans and salt. It pairs perfectly with a nice meat, perfect to add in soups and stews, and great with some Korean noods.
For this Sheet Pan Gochujang Chicken and Bok Choy, we basically make a Gochujang “paint” if you will. This is spread onto what ever veggies you would like to use. I used Bok Choy, but I have a hung most veggies would be delicious. Think broccoli, zucchini, squash, brussels, I could go on! And then spread perfectly on top of your choice of chicken.
