Recipe & Review: Yogiyo Gochu jang BBQ chicken


Yogiyo! is the UKs first Korean cooking range, featuring three delicious new sauces for everything from marinades to dipping to stir frys. 

I love Asian flavours but had never tried Korean before so I was keen to get stuck in and try these. 

The three sauces in the range are: 

Gochu Jang for cooking. Gochu Jang is a fermented chilli paste unique to South Korea. It is rich, spicy & sweet with notes of peppery Korean chilli. This sauce is perfect for marinades and is the sauce used in the featured recipe below. 

Gochu Jang for dipping which has the same authentic flavours as the cooking version but is much lighter so perfect for  dunking vegetable crudités or prawn crackers. 

Galbi for stir frys. Galbi is usually served as thin beef strips coated & cooked. The sauce is soy based with a sweet fruity taste. 

All of the sauces are natural with no artificial flavours, MSG or preservatives. 

All of the sauces are delicious and full of flavour but my favourite has to be the Gochu Jang cooking sauce. 

It is so refreshing to be able to cook authentic Korean meals in my own home.

The recipe below uses chicken thighs but the flavours would totally work with ribs or pulled pork too. 

The sauce is so sticky and sweet.... I just want to eat it every night for my dinner!!!



INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
6 Spring onions, thinly sliced 
3 tbsp rice vinegar
3 tbsp maple syrup 
2 tbsp yogiyo! Gochu yang cooking sauce
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp grated ginger
6 cloves garlic, grated or minced
Pinch of salt
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs 

METHOD
1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and put the chicken thighs in. Cover and marinade in the fridge for 4 hours minimum. 

2. Take the chicken out of the fridge 30 minutes before you want to cook it to bring it up to room temperature. 

3. Shallow dry the chicken for 15 minutes, continually basting the chicken with the marinade using a silicone brush. 

4. Whilst the chicken is cooking, take 1-2 cups of the marinade and simmer in a pan for 8-10 minutes, until thickened. 

5. When the chicken is cooked, plate up and pour over the thickened, sticky sauce. 




Yogiyo sauces are currently available to buy in Sainsburys so get yourself down there for some soon!
