Baked Crispy Gochujang Chicken Breast

Gochujang is just delicious! It’s a savory, Korean paste made from fermented soybeans, rice, and chilies. If you like Sriracha you will Love Gochujang. It’s far more complex and interesting. I had an idea of what flavors went well with gochujang  so I wanted to marinate chicken in it to make it delicious. I also wanted to add a crispy texture simply baking the plain boneless breast of chicken. So I thought of the kind of American Crispy Chicken recipes where Corn Flakes are used for a crispy texture. So I used Asian thin crispy rice crackers, crushed them and applied them to the marinated chicken and they stayed on and more importantly tasted great. This really did come out amazing. This is something you will make over and over again!
