We always seem to have chicken thighs or breasts thawed in our refrigerator. There are so many creative ways to work with chicken, I am always looking for new ideas.
I managed to stocked my pantry and fridge with some asian ingredients lately when I was making some fancy Ramen recipes, so I decided to see what I could make with what I already had in the cabinet. As I searched online for dishes with the ingredients I had on hand, I learned that any Korean dish with meat marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and sugar is Bulgogi. I really like the flavors of Bulgogi!
After a little modification of the recipe, this delectable dish is a new family favorite. The chicken comes out very tender, juicy and full of sweetness and flavor. With a little of the sauce drizzled over your rice, what is sometimes boring rice becomes something your kids or friends will be begging for more of.
This dish is so easy to prepare and make, it has become a quick meal when I want to have a great tasting meal without spending an hour in the kitchen.
Wineparrot suggests you pair it with…
Pinot Noir has light to moderate body with delicious varied aromas and flavors.
The fruitier versions make a great match with salmon or other fatty fish, roasted chicken or pasta dishes Bigger, more tannic Pinots are ideal with duck and other game birds, casseroles or beef stews.
