I am from San Diego, where you have tons of options when it comes to Korean BBQ eateries. But, since going completely gluten-free, I couldn’t find any places serving Korean Sesame Chicken without the gluten ingredients. I also didn’t want the extra added grease that most eateries provide along with your meal. ewwwww. The thing I love about Organicville’s Sky Valley Korean BBQ Sauce, is that it’s fresh tasting without all the extra random ingredients most bottled sauces contain. I usually make my own sauce, which you can find here, but when you are pressed for time, or just want a simple and delicious meal, this Korean Sesame Chicken recipe is definitely the route you want to take.
Whenever I have guests, I love to make this Gluten-Free Korean Sesame Chicken because it’s just so easy! Plus, I get so many compliments, which makes it an easy go to classic for me.
You can really serve this Gluten-Free Korean Sesame Chicken with any desirable side dish. I like organic broccoli and rice. But you can serve with organic green beans, toss over a salad, or serve with some “zoodles”. The options are endless. So, next time your crowd is demanding something delicious or someone has a craving for Korean BBQ, you now have a recipe ready to go!
- 2 lbs organic boneless chicken thighs sliced up
- 1/3 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup organic/gluten-free plum sauce (I use Organicville Foods Sky Valley brand)
- 1/3 cup organic/gluten-free korean bbq sauce (I use Organicville Foods Sky Valley brand)
- 1/3 cup organic/gluten-free soy sauce
- 1 tbsp organic garlic powder
- 2 tbsp organic raw honey
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp organic pepper
- 1 tsp organic ginger powder
- 2 tsp organic sesame seeds
- (optional: for extra spice add organic red pepper flakes)
- 1. Mix all marinade ingredients in a large bowl and toss in sliced chicken thoroughly coating in marinade. Refrigerate at least 1-2 hours.
- 2. In a large wok, heat stove top on high, and cook chicken for ten minutes periodically stirring. Reduce heat to low and cook for an addition 7-9 minutes. (Please note: Gas and electric stove tops vary so eyeball, and the goal cooking on high heat is to caramelize and brown the meat to a deep color which takes most of the marinade moisture out. Cooking on low allows to simmer producing a sticky sauce.)
- 3. Place chicken in serving dish, top with sesame seeds. Enjoy and serve with broccoli, salad or rice!
