For the chicken skewers

  • 1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Bamboo skewers, soaked in water

For the Gochujang sauce

  • 2 tablespoons Gochujang paste (Korean red pepper paste)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Optional garnish

  • Thinly sliced green onions
  • Sesame seeds


  1. In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, rice vinegar, vegetable oil, sesame seeds, and black pepper. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved and the marinade is well mixed.
  2. Place the chicken pieces in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure each piece is coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or up to overnight for maximum flavor.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. If using bamboo skewers, thread the marinated chicken pieces onto the soaked skewers.
  4. Grease the grill grates with some vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Place the chicken skewers on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and slightly charred.
  5. While the chicken is grilling, prepare the Gochujang sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Stir until well combined.
  6. Remove the cooked chicken skewers from the grill and brush them with the Gochujang sauce, reserving some for dipping. Alternatively, you can serve the sauce on the side.
  7. Garnish the skewers with thinly sliced green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.


  • If you don't have access to Gochujang paste, you can substitute it with Sriracha sauce mixed with a small amount of tomato paste for a similar spicy and tangy flavor.
  • For a milder version, reduce the amount of Gochujang paste in the sauce and adjust according to your preference.
  • Serve the Korean BBQ Chicken Skewers with steamed rice and a side of pickled vegetables for a complete and authentic Korean meal.
