Gochujang is a Korean condiment with tons of bright, peppery flavor. It's made with chile peppers but is sweet enough for kids. Try it on grilled meat or stirred into mayonnaise for a sandwich. If you'd like, swap pieces of pork tenderloin or sirloin steak for the chicken.

  • Meanwhile, soak wooden skewers in water 30 minutes. (Omit if using metal skewers.) Cut each lemon into 8 wedges.

  • Coat cold cooking grate of grill with cooking spray, and place on grill. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread chicken and lemon wedges alternately onto skewers, leaving a 1/8-inch space between pieces.

  • Grill kabobs, covered with grill lid, 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Transfer to a serving platter. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves.

  • Note: We tested with Annie Chun's Korean Sweet & Spicy Go-Chu-Jang.
