Instant Pot Sticky Korean Chicken…the greatest Monday dinner.
Sorry, I don’t imply to shout at you, highly on a Monday, but it’s true what I stated up there, here’s the greatest Monday dinner. It’s an underneath thirty minute meal, tremendous simple, and additional delicious.
Ok, all of the dramatics aside, I do quite love this recipe and am very excited to share it with you guys for therefore many reasons.
I wished to leap the week off with yet one other Korean impressed recipe, simply due to the fact you guys…we are simply NULL days clear of boarding an aircraft and flying off to South Korea. Craziness! It’s nonetheless wonderful to me that we’re headed there to observe my brother compete inside the Olympics. I recognize I’ve been speaking about this for weeks, but here’s for specific the coolest factor to ever occur inside my family. I were following alongside with my brother Red’s Instagram tales (it is so fun having social media so we’ll all be a area of his experience). He spent Saturday in Soul, South Korea getting geared up for his Team USA Opening and Closing Ceremony outfit. Yup, simply one other regular Saturday…
One of my favourite Korean impressed recipes is Bulgogi, which is Korean gilled red meat in a candy and spicy sauce. It’s quite simply so good. I even have a recipe for Korean Bulgogi BBQ Steak Bowls which you simply guys all appear to love, but I wished to create a lighter, easier chook model utilizing the Instant Pot (don’t worry, I protected gradual cooker directions too).
The key to this recipe is all inside the sauce, it’s sweet, sticky, and somewhat bit spicy. It takes typically boring chook to a complete new level.
Most regular Bulgogi marinades use pears and much of brown sugar, but I wished to hold this chook at the more fit side, so I swapped honey for brown sugar and decreased the sweetness somewhat via omitting the pear (which I am quite no longer a fan of anyway). The relaxation of the sauce contains Gochujang (Korean chili paste) sesame oil, ginger and garlic.
And then? Everything will get combined and cooked up inside the Instant Pot (or gradual cooker). It might no longer be easier.
I desire to serve this Korean chook over a bed of rice with a few kimchi, toasted sesame seeds, and inexperienced onions. I also brought in a few thinly sliced mango…because I am obsessed and I can’t assist myself. Mango is for specific no longer Korean, but it’s delicious. Just cross with me in this one.
Here’s the thing, as I said, I’m specific this isn’t traditional. But that’s sort of the thought of those Korean impressed recipes I’m sharing, they’re purely Korean inspired. I can’t wait to see how the recipes I’m sharing now, range from the actual deal Korean meals that we might be having fun with in South Korea. My objective is to discover a few new inspiration whereas there and be capable to come house and share new, additional traditional, Korean recipes with you guys.
But till then, you ought to perhaps make this chicken, simply due to the fact regular or not, it’s quite stinkin’ good.
Also? I assume if there’s one factor I would prepare dinner inside the Instant Pot, it shall be chicken. I’m no longer going to lie, I even have a love/hate courting with my Instant Pot. I’m nonetheless attempting to determine specific issues out. But if there’s one factor the Instant Pot appears to prepare dinner amazingly well, it’s chicken. No subject what, it at all times seems tender, moist, and via no means dry.
That said, this may simply be cooked inside the gradual cooker and even inside the oven.
And with that, I’m off to hold operating away in education for my week away. Happiest Monday!
PS. I even have purely ever been out of the nation once, and that was to Mexico, so this might be a complete new sort of journey for me. It ought to be fun…and very interesting, pondering no person in my household is aware of even somewhat Korean. Ahh, yikes!
