Pria’s Dak Gui (Chicken Bulgogi) @ Home

Here’s a Korean chicken recipe that I always make for my son, family and friends. This is such an easy no fuss recipe. All the ingredients are readily available in major supermarkets around the metro or in any of your Asian food stores.

Hope you try this easy recipe when you can.

Here’s what you will need:

I used skinless boneless chicken thighs. I find that chicken thighs are best used as they stay moist and have more flavour.

Light soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar and Ssamjang Paste.

Ssamjang is available in any asian food store or korean market. This is a combination of gochujang and the Korean Miso paste. Delish!

Onion, chopped, garlic and ginger and chives/spring onions (my apologies, I forgot to photograph the spring onions) 😦

Place the onion, water, sliced ginger and garlic in a food processor and process until a paste. Set aside.

Combine ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine. Add chicken pieces and mix until completely mixed through. Marinate for at least 4 hours up to overnight.

I love to grill this dish on charcoal but since my sister doesn’t have a grill, I decided to pan-fry it instead.

Heat a skillet over medium heat and add olive or canola oil. Add the marinated chicken and cook until done. Please note that in the beginning of the pan frying process, there will be a lot of liquid in the pan from the chicken juices and marinade, but keep cooking it until the juices have somewhat thickened and the chicken is cooked all the way through. Please make sure you keep stirring the meat so it doesn’t get burned due to the sugar content in this dish.

Oscar with his Dak Gui plate. I chose to serve this with the traditional Namul spinach and bean sprout salad. (please see my previous posts on them)
