I usually go to the store with a plan. But when I went over the weekend, I didn’t have any. Instead, I just bought a whole chicken. Not sure what I wanted to do with it, I started searching for something different.
And that’s when I found this recipe for Korean BBQ chicken. I love Korean BBQ chicken. It’s spicy, it’s sweet, it’s perfect. I couldn’t wait to try this recipe!
Like others, I added 1 tsp of garlic powder and instead of chili paste, I used 2 TBSP of chili pepper flakes. The smell, when it was simmering, was phenomenal.
Once it cooled, I whisked in the lemon juice and chili flakes. Then I let the chicken marinade overnight in a covered container. It makes about 3 cups of marinade.
It was pretty good, but there wasn’t as much heat as I would have liked. Next time, I’m going to put cayenne pepper on the chicken before I put it in the oven.
Overall though, it was good — just a little sweet for my taste.
