With me not having a formal “job” right now one of my tasks is to make my husband lunch everyday. We live in a small town and he works literally blocks away. So lucky for me we get to eat lunch together everyday. But even though I don’t have a job right now I have taken on quite a bit of extra responsibilities. So between squeezing in working out, blogging, get my craft business going, household tasks, adulting it all the time I try to make easy balanced meals (if you couldn’t tell). Trying to figure out a new lunch item daily gets old real fast. Especially when you are trying to avoid processed or frozen food as options. So I fall on basics that are easy. And this Korean Chicken fits the bill. I have made this with ground beef and/or sliced steak before as alternative and it turns out great any way.
- 1 lb chicken – sliced to uniform size
- 3 garlic cloves – diced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- Optional toppings – Sliced green onions or toasted sesame seeds
Cook up the chicken with garlic, salt/pepper, and a splash of oil. Sesame oil is preferred but I also like peanut oil based on flavor preference. Drain any excess grease. Add brown sugar & soy sauce. Stir until smooth and let the chicken simmer for a few minutes. Pour over rice and top with one of your optional toppings.
So I had all of these items on hand excluding the green onions. So guess what I omitted? Haha!
Have you ever made this before? What is your variety (everyone has one – ha)? And what do you suggest? Comment below. Or follow me on facebook, twitter, Pinterest & here 🙂
