Chicken Bulgogi Bowls

with Carrots, Pickled Cucumber, and Sriracha Crema

Read more

If you’re a fan of our beef bulgogi bowl, then you’ll love this chicken rendition. It’s just as sweet, savory, tangy, and delicious—but it features crispy, pan-seared pieces of chicken instead of ground beef. The chicken is finished in the same signature sesame-and-soy-spiked concoction known as bulgogi sauce (cue the swoons). There’s also quick-pickled cucumber ribbons, tender shredded carrots, and a spicy sriracha crema all arranged over a bed of fluffy white rice. Dig in!

Cook Rice
Cook Rice

In a small pot, combine rice, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings), and a large pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until water has absorbed and rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.


Meanwhile, wash and dry all produce. In a medium bowl, combine half the vinegar (you’ll use the rest later), ½ tsp sugar (1 tsp for 4 servings), and a large pinch of salt. Trim ends from cucumber; shave lengthwise into thin ribbons using a peeler, rotating as you go. Stop once you get to the seedy core; discard core. Toss ribbons into bowl with vinegar mixture. Set aside to quick-pickle, tossing occasionally.
