Korean Grilled Chicken

Jeanette Terry from Wild Abandon Kitchen has an awesome spring/summer recipe for us today. It's time to dust off that grill!

As the weather warms up, we like to grill more often. This is also known as a divide and conquer dinner - hubby mans the grill with the meat and I either steam some vegetables or make a salad or better yet, I give him the vegetables to grill everything as I pour the wine ;)

This marinade is excellent for chicken or pork and was a winner with my kids. This is adapted from Skinnytaste.


Korean Style Marinade

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 TBS grated ginger (or grab a squeeze tube from the produce department)
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • Garnish: sesame seeds and sliced scallions

Combine ingredients and pour into zip top bag and marinate meat for at least one hour. This makes enough to marinate approximately 2 pounds of chicken or pork. I prefer boneless skinless chicken thighs or pork tenderloin, though this works just as well on chicken breasts. If they are very thick, I often cut each breast in half lengthwise before marinating.
