Spicy Gochujang Boneless Chicken Breast top quality chicken marinated in a vibrant blend of Gochujang seasonings. During marination, the meat becomes extra tender and absorbs flavor from the spicy marinade. Gochujang is a sweet-spicy, savory fermented sauce made from chili powder, yeotgireum (barley malt powder), salt, meju (fermented soybean) and glutinous rice. It originated in Korea and the surrounding areas.
