Kimchi (Korean pickles) typically come packed in a spicy brine that’s so good, you could just bottle it up and use it like your very own secret sauce. Well, guess what: we’ve done just that, using it to add some fiercely feisty personality to chicken thighs. Keeping with the Eastern theme, there’s also an Asian pear and sesame slaw on the side that counters the heat with bit of tang and sweetness, plus rice to soak up all that flavor.
