korean spicy chicken and potato (tak toritang)Submitted by: WVROOT
IntroductionModified a recipe I found on-line. Not sure where it was from. This says spicy but it wasn't for my family. Maybe adding more paste would help, but I choose to keep it milder for the kids.
I think this would be easy for the crockpot. DH says it reminds him of a Korean Pot Roast, but with chicken;) Modified a recipe I found on-line. Not sure where it was from. This says spicy but it wasn't for my family. Maybe adding more paste would help, but I choose to keep it milder for the kids.

My version doesn't call for carrots or onion. And it calls for 5 TBSPs of Korean red pepper paste and 1 TBSP of the red pepper powder. I have a Korean high school student living with me this year and over the weekend I made if for her and her friend. My eyes sweated, but they downed it. No problem. - 10/18/09
I first created this recipe on allrecipes.com. The reason your version is more mild is because you reduced the gochujang paste to only 2 tbs. It's supposed to be 3 HEAPING tbs to be really authentic. Be sure to use chicken with bone-in so the meat stays juicy and not dried out. - 4/30/09
I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it sounds great. Just in case anyone is wondering, this recipe is very authentic. I'm living in Korea now and love this meal! It's so delicious! When made with full chili paste, it sure can make you sweat! - 3/14/09

Thanks...I made it to my taste. I am half-Korean but live in a very rural area. My family(3 people) alone makes up 1/3 of the Korean population in the county;) It's good to know my tastebuds haven't gotten too off track.
