How to Make Korean Chicken Bulgogi and Broccoli

The first thing to do to get this recipe rolling is grab a small bowl or mason jar to make the marinade for the chicken. All of the ingredients are simply whisked or shaken until completely combined. The key component is Korean chili paste called Gochujang (gōe-choo-jang). It’s thick and spicy with an earthy flavor that you can add more or less of depending on your gang’s heat tolerance. If you have trouble finding it, sriracha is a worthy substitute. The marinade is rounded out with soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, sesame oil, garlic, fresh ginger and sesame seeds. Pour just enough over the chicken to cover so you’ll have plenty to pass around when serving and for a future use.

Let the chicken marinate at least twenty minutes and up to two hours. Prep the broccoli, peppers and onion in the meantime. And feel free to change up the veggies with whatever you have on hand. When ready, place the vegetables on one side of an extra-large rimmed sheet pan and the chicken on the other in a single layer. Then pop into the oven!

After just about twenty minutes or so you’ll have tender chicken and slightly charred veggies ready to go over fluffy rice or quinoa.

Assembling Korean Chicken Bulgogi and Broccoli Bowls

But before we build our bowls, let’s chat a sec about that yum yum sauce and garnishes. In addition to the reserved marinade, adding either store-bought or homemade yum yum sauce, aka Japanese steakhouse sauce, brings more delicious dimension. Fresh basil, cilantro and thinly sliced green onions cut diagonally adds further flavor and flare.

Begin building your bowl with a base of rice, quinoa, Asian noodles, or pass on these altogether if sticking to low-carb diet. If not, you’ll love how the sauces are absorbed into the bottom of the bowl. There’s no need to order takeout when you have a quick, easy, super delish recipe like this in your rotation.
