Dak bulgogi is a delicious, easy-to-make Korean chicken dish that’s perfect for any night of the week. The sweet and savory bulgogi flavor makes this dish irresistible, and you’ll love how quick and easy it is to prepare. Dak bulgogi is sure to become a family favorite!

What Is Bulgogi?

Bulgogi (pronounced bull-GOH-ghee) is a famous Korean meat dish. ‘Bul’ literally translates to ‘fire,’ and ‘gogi’ means ‘meat.’ Traditional bulgogi is made with thinly sliced beef marinated in a sweet and spicy savory sauce. The bulgogi sauce usually contains gochujang paste, soy sauce, Asian pear, and some other ingredients depending on the region.

Beef bulgogi is a KBBQ classic, but this delicious dish can also be made with other main ingredients. Other popular bulgogi dishes include Bulgogi Mushrooms, Bulgogi Salmon, and even Bulgogi Meatballs.

Chicken Bulgogi Cooking Tips & Tricks

  1. You can choose any part of the chicken you like for this dish, but chicken thighs and chicken breasts are the best options. Here is a slightly different recipe of dak bulgogi using chicken breast - Bulgogi Grilled Chicken
  2. No matter what recipe of bulgogi sauce you choose to use, make sure to marinate the meat for at least several hours or even better overnight before you cook the chicken.
  3. You can make this recipe on an outdoor grill as well. In that case, make extra bulgogi sauce for basting.
  4. Chicken bulgogi is best served with steamed white rice. You can also serve it in traditional lettuce wraps with ssamjang or soybean paste. Korean side dishes like kimchi or sesame spinach salad also taste great with dak bulgogi.

Spicy Chicken Bulgogi Sauce Ingredients:

  • Sesame Oil - has a nutty flavor and aroma and is a popular flavor enhancer in many Korean recipes. Light olive oil can be used to substitute Sesame oil in sauces.

  • Rice Wine or Mirin Rice wine is a common ingredient in many Asian sauces and marinades. It tenderizes the meat and boosts the other flavors. You can use Mirin as a substitute for rice wine. And if you can’t find either one, dry sherry can work in this marinade as well. Don’t use rice vinegar as a substitute; it is not the same.
    There are many recipes for bulgogi marinades. You can add these two popular marinade ingredients to your bulgogi sauce.

  • Asian Pear- Many bulgogi sauce recipes contain Asian pears. They are juicy, sweet, hard, and crisp. You can substitute them with sweet and crisp Fuji apples. If you can’t find either, kiwi or pineapple could be an option as well.

  • Gochujang Paste Gochujang is a staple ingredient in Korean cuisine. It is a thick, sweet, and spicy maroon-colored paste made from red chili pepper flakes, fermented soybeans, and sticky rice. It is a powerful umami agent in many Korean dishes and KBBQ sauces.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Rinse Tyson® Chicken Thighs (1 lb) . Trim off excess fat. Cut each of the chicken pieces into small sizes (about 2 inches long and 1 inch wide).
Step 2
Mix the Soy Sauce (3 Tbsp) , Lemon Juice (1 Tbsp) , Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp) , Honey (1 Tbsp) , Rice Wine (1 Tbsp) , Garlic (1 clove) , Fresh Ginger (1 tsp) , Sesame Oil (1 Tbsp) , Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) , and Sesame Seeds (1 tsp) .
Step 3
Coat the chicken pieces with the marinade. Marinate for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Step 4
Preheat a skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken pieces, reserving the marinade. Cook until cooked through and slightly caramelized, about 2 minutes each side. The sugar and honey in the marinade will burn easily, so watch it carefully and add the reserved marinade by tablespoon when the pan gets dry. Reduce heat if it starts to burn.
Step 5
Serve while warm and enjoy!
