Units Scale
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or other neutral oil
  • 1 cup cabbage, chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons ginger, peeled and grated
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Put all the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl and whisk until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Cut the chicken into 2-inch pieces, trimming off the excess fat, and add it to the marinade.
  3. Mix well to coat the chicken and cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap. Marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  4. Brush the grill pan or skillet with the oil and turn the heat to medium high. Add the chicken and cabbage and reserve the marinade. Cook the chicken on each side for 2 to 3 minutes or until it is cooked through. If the pan looks dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the marinade at a time.
  5. Transfer the chicken and cabbage to a plate and top with green onions. Serve


Store the leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
