My hubby had a work event tonight so I had to eat dinner by myself.
Which is not really happens often.
Anyway, I still needed to eat dinner so I decided to make a new recipe!
I come up with the idea of this unique delicious chicken recipe yesterday while I was in a shower.
I was dying to try this recipe since I thought about it, and it didn’t take long.
My original idea was with salmon, but I thought why not chicken?!
Especially I don’t have salmon on my hands, but chicken!
I still have some other recipe ideas for salmon so I was going for chicken. hehe.
It was amazingly yummy, I couldn’t let myself keep this recipe with out telling you guys.
The ingredients are..
1 Tablespoon Gochujang
2 teaspoons sugar
1 Tablespoon Mirin (Seasoned rice wine)
1/4 teaspoon grated ginger
Zest from 1 lemon
Fresh juice from 1/2 lemon
Small pinch of salt for taste
2 boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
Combine first 7 ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk well.
Take 1 Tablespoon of the mixture and set aside for later.
Add chicken into the gochujang mixture, coat well both sides and marinate for 15 to 30 minutes.
Add sesame oil into a cold medium skillet, place marinated chicken on the skillet before turn on the heat.
Heat over medium heat, chicken will start sizzle then count 5 minutes, and turn it over or before it burns; cook another 3 minutes or until done and keep turning over prevent burn. Brush the remaining gochujang mixture on the chicken each time when you are turning over the chicken.
Remove from heat serve with warm rice or between slices of breads.
I enjoyed it very well with my rice and steamed broccoli.
I started cook the chicken on a cold skillet,
because I didn’t want to add on a hot skillet and burn it even before start cooking.
Gochujang is very easy to burn.
(Easpecially even more sugar in the sauce..)
Keep the heat on medium, just be patient.
Then you will have beautiful spicy juicy chicken on your plate.
I think it will be great idea for grilling also.
I hope you guys try this recipe and tell me how you liked it!
