My daughter made us a meal fit for Master Chef this week. In fact she made Korean chicken with Gochujang sauce just like Chariya made, (only she put hers in a bao bun.)
The photo doesn’t really do the food justice, it really was delicious. The dish was served in a bowl, it’s often called a poke bowl when served this way. Poke bowls originated in Hawaii and consisted mainly of fish. Now, they bowls of rice with vegetables and protein of many kinds. The main thing about the poke bowl is the flavour and you have to make sure that the food oozes with it. Some do this with a type of soup like sauce, and some do it by marinated the vegetables and using a pouring sauce, like this one with Gochujang.
Gochujang is sweet and very spicy based mostly on chilli and is very popular in Korea. My daughter made the fried battered chicken thighs, put them on a bed of rice. Added picked cucumber and spring onions then added the sauce before topping with an egg. I didn’t have as much sauce on mine because it really is spicy.
Chicken thighs are a delicious part of the chicken which are often overlooked. We always used to buy chicken breasts but with prices becoming so high we’ve found thighs much better value and they fry lovely, keeping moist, whereas breasts tend to dry out when fried.
Another chicken thigh recipe we enjoy is karaage, it’s so simple and tasty to make. The sauces you use make all the difference though.
My next task is to get my daughter to make bao buns, I love them.

Oh wow! Well done you daughter, this looks and sounds amazing!
This looks delicious. We’re big fans of poke bowls :o)
Delicious! Your daughter did well!
That does look amazing! Very well done to your daughter.
That’s interesting about the chicken thighs. I don’t eat meat myself, but my husband, younger son and daughter do and it’s almost entirely chicken. I had noticed how expensive chicken breast was getting, so I might buy some chicken thighs to see what they think.
Honestly, I really believe that thighs are so much more tastier. obviously you don’t get as big a piece as breast, but they don’t dry out as much. (I only eat chicken, occasionally lamb, although the price of that makes my eyes water!)
Ooo that looks so tasty! Thanks for linking up and sharing your snaps with #MySundaySnapshot.
Great! Your daughter has done a good job by preparing this meal! I hope she will be encouraged to cook more delicious meals.
Have a great day!
