Korean Grilled Chicken

Korean Grilled Chicken. Marinated and grilled until crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside!

korean-grilled-bbq-chicken-thighsI’ve got another great chicken recipe to make on the grill. I made this recipe with chicken thighs to keep the chicken tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.

This recipe is super simple. Simply add all of the sauce ingredients to a resealable Ziploc bag, add in the chicken and toss to coat. Marinade the chicken for at least two hours or overnight.

easy-korean-grilled-chickenThis Korean Grilled Chicken is loaded with flavor. The marinade is made of fresh ginger, garlic, low sodium soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, sesame oil and lots of green onions. I also like to add in a bit of sriracha for a little kick. You can make it as spicy as you like. I like to double the amount in this recipe because I like it extra spicy!



korean-marinadeWhen you’re ready to eat preheat the grill to medium-hight heat and cook for 5-10 minutes on each side until fully cooked.


Serve with a side of veggies and rice.
