Gochujang and Honey Chicken

Ingredients – Serves 2:

  • 2 chicken thighs

  • 1tbsp of light soy sauce
  • 1tsp of honey
  • 1tsp of gochujang
  • 1tsp of sesame oil
  • 1tsp of rice wine
  • 2cm of grated fresh ginger
  • Garnishes: sliced spring onions, sesame seeds, Korean BBQ sauce or sticky teriyaki


  • Preheat the oven to 190C.
  • Place the chicken in a bowl and mix with all the remaining ingredients (ideally marinating overnight).
  • Line a baking tray with a sheet of parchment paper as the marinate is sticky and would burn the tray.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes but double check the chicken is cooked thoroughly (add a few more minutes if you have bigger thighs).

OI MUCHIM – Cucumber salad

Ingredients – Serves 2:

  • 1/2 cucumber, battered gently with a rolling pin and sliced
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • 1x spring onion, sliced

  • 1tsp of sugar
  • 1tsp of sesame oil
  • 1/2tsp of gochugaru flakes
  • 1tsp of mixed sesame seeds


  • Place the cucumber, sliced radishes, spring onions and sesame seeds in a mixing bowl
  • Place the vinegar, sugar, sesame oil and gochugaru flakes in a separate, smaller, bowl and mix until the sugar has dissolved
  • Combine the liquid and prepared veg together, toss well and place in the fridge until needed. (allow at least 15 minutes to marinade but no more than 2 hours as the cucumber would become too mushy).

Kimchi Jun Pancakes

Ingredients – Serves 2:

  • It is important to separate kimchi from its brine first, roughly chop the veg and mix it back together, the pancakes will be too chunky and might fall apart otherwise. Place both in a mixing bowl.
  • Add flour, beaten egg, spring onions, soy, sesame oil, sesame seeds and season well.
  • Fold together, until the mixture forms thick batter.
