닭갈비 (Dak Galbi/Spicy Marinated Chicken)

I was craving Korean food and the closest restaurant is probably at least 2 hours away, so I decided to do another kitchen experiment of sorts. Thank goodness for the internet. :O I loosely adapted this from here and here (as usual, it was dependent on what I did and did not have in my kitchen).

닭갈비 (Dak Galbi/Spicy Marinated Chicken)

-1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs/breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
-1 tsp powdered ginger
-1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
-3 tbsp gochujang (spicy red pepper paste)
-4 cloves garlic, minced
-1 tbsp soy sauce
-1 tbsp light brown sugar
-1 tsp mild curry powder
-2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
-1 tbsp sesame oil

1) Combine all marinade ingredients into a small bowl and toss the chicken pieces in. Let it marinate for at least 2 hours (or overnight).
2) Heat up a skillet and throw in the chicken. Stir periodically and wait til the chicken is cooked through.

I put it into a whole wheat pita with spinach! :]
