Korean-style Grilled Chicken

This grilled chicken is seriously easy – but don’t think that means flavour takes a back seat! It’s one big taste explosion, and the lemony, sesame salt at the end is to die for. For even more awesomeness, leave the meat to marinade overnight.

This is one of my most favorite dishes to make!! It’s delicious, easy, and makes for fantastic leftovers (that’s if there’s any!) the lemon salt is a MUST for this recipe!

This dish is super easy to make and one of our go-to-recipes. It is the combination of spicy, salty and a little sweetness what makes this so good. Tip: Even when you don’t have a lemon on hand, this meal still tastes good! So give it a try.

I just came across your recipe today as I had gochujang in my food cupboard and most of the ingredients. It was so delicious! Thank you.
