South Korean Barbecue Chicken Marinade



1 cup white sugar

1 cup soy sauce

1 cup water

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 tablespoon lemon juice

4 teaspoons hot chile paste



Whisk sugar, soy sauce, water, onion powder, and ground ginger together in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature, 20 to 30 minutes. Whisk in lemon juice and chile paste.



Pour marinade over chicken, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Then cook chicken as desired.



This Korean chicken marinade can also be used as a basting sauce or served over chicken rice bowls.

If you like it hot, increase the hot chile paste as desired up to four tablespoons — that’s about as much as anyone can take!
