"A very easy meal to make! Chicken drumettes, potato, carrots, and onion simmer in a spicy sauce that goes best with white rice. You can find Korean hot pepper paste in a Korean/Asian market. I haven't tried looking in a grocery store. It's Korean name is 'gochujang.'"

We have a Korean exchange student living with us. He said this taste like what his mom makes. Ya!!
