Calorie-Wise: Spicy Buldak Fire Chicken

with Sweet Pepper & Sautéed Asian Greens

Cooking time

20 minutes




360 /serving

Pssst, want a hot tip? It’s called buldak chicken, and you heard it here first. The meaning in Korean is fire chicken, and the heat is packed into a mixture of potent gochujang paste, soy sauce and sweet pepper that’s spooned over the meat as it cooks. Less expected and even more delicious is the cheese factor, in the form of grated mozzarella, which comes in to soothe the spiciness with a final broil. Sautéed Asian greens offer more contrast on the side.

Cook the chicken
Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spices and pepper. In a large, oven-safe pan, heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Add the chicken* and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Sauté the yu choy
Meanwhile, remove the bottom ½ inch of the yu choy stems; halve crosswise. In a second large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the yu choy and sauté, 2 to 3 min., until slightly browned; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Add 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions) and cook, partially covered, 1 to 2 min., until softened.

Start the fire chicken
Preheat the oven to broil. In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the sweet pepper and sauté, scraping up any browned bits, 2 to 3 min., until softened. Add the gochujang mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 min., until the sauce has thickened. Return the chicken and cook, spooning the sauce over, 1 to 2 min., until coated.
