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.

So so good

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.

Bursting with flavor

This recipe is one of my new favorites! So quick and packs so much flavor. Highly recommend. I didn’t have black sesame seeds (I will soon) so I toasted regular white sesame seeds and it was delicious. Husband loved it as well.
