Hoisin-Glazed Chicken with Roasted Kohlrabi

Kale, Kimchi Mayo & Rice

Cooking time

30 minutes




1060 /serving

In every way, taste, shape and form, this bowl of plenty has what it takes to combat the cold weather. Piled over a heaping helping of long-grain rice, the chicken shines in a sweet and savoury glaze of hoisin sauce, while kale brings in a nutritious zap of green. Soft crunch comes from cubes of kohlrabi, an underloved vegetable (it looks like an alien but has a nice subtle flavour). The mayo, which gets a kick in the pants from kimchi, is not to be missed.

Roast the kohlrabi
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel and small-dice the kohlrabi. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil and ½ the spices. Roast, stirring halfway, 18 to 22 min., until browned and tender.

Cook the rice
Meanwhile, in a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, remove the kale leaves from the stems; roughly chop the leaves. Remove the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. In a medium bowl, combine the kale, ½ the vinegar, a generous drizzle of oil and S&P. Massage the kale, 1 to 2 min., until softened. Roughly chop the kimchi. In a small bowl, make the kimchi mayo by combining the mayo and kimchi (add ½ for medium spicy).

Toast the sunflower seeds
In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Toast the sunflower seeds, 2 to 3 min., or until golden brown. Transfer to a bowl; season with S&P. Reserve the pan.

Cook & glaze the chicken
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices. Cook, 4 to 6 min. per side, until cooked through. Add the white bottoms of the scallions and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 min., until softened. Add the hoisin sauce, remaining vinegar and 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions). Cook, spooning the glaze over the chicken, 1 to 2 min., until coated.
