Try this Asian inspired, uniquely flavored sweet and spicy sauce in place of BBQ or buffalo sauce. Great with chicken! It can be used to slather chicken wings. Try it on any cut of fried chicken. It also can make a yummy dipping sauce for chicken tenders.

This unique sauce is a combination of Gochujang (a hot pepper paste from Korea), soy sauce, sesame oil, red wine vinegar, sugar and water. It’s so good, I wanted to put it on everything! You won’t be disappointed!
