This really is far from authentic I’m sure, but it is quick and it is healthy and delicious so I’ll take the flak the shortcuts. It’s just leftover chicken turned in Korean Bulgogi marinade, a little soy, rice wine vinegar and sugar then flashed through a chargrill pan. I put the chicken in the marinade before I leave for work in the morning so it really gets into the chicken by the time I come home.
It’s a dinner I have when I haven’t really got time to cook and I confess to having it with good quality ready made rice pouches (the Tilda brown rice ones are nice and actually have no additives or chemicals in them – I was surprised about that as I’d always turned my nose up at them). Of course I cook rice when I have time but when I get in after 10 hours out of the house working and commuting and I’m utterly dropping with hunger it’s better than putting a crappy pizza in the oven or ordering a takeaway.
Whilst it’s chargrilling chop a bit of fresh chilli, some coriander and find the sesame seeds in the cupboard if you’ve got any. Some steamed greens in oyster sauce – something you don’t even have to chop like sugar snap peas – go well with it for a really quick but actually very healthy and delicious dinner.
