Yield
Serves 4 (serving size: 3 lettuce wraps and 1 1/2 teaspoons sauce)

Think of gochujang as Korean steak sauce, adding savory depth to the chicken. You can find it at many supermarkets, or substitute equal parts Sriracha and white/yellow miso (soybean paste).

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Place 2 tablespoons soy sauce mixture in a small bowl; set aside. Add chicken slices to remaining soy sauce mixture in bag; seal. Refrigerate 2 hours.

Step 2

Cook rice according to package directions.

Step 3

Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done. Sprinkle sesame seeds over chicken. Place 3 tablespoons rice in each lettuce leaf; top each lettuce leaf with 1/3 cup chicken mixture, 2 cucumber slices, and about 1 1/2 teaspoons green onions. Serve with reserved 2 tablespoons soy sauce mixture.

We enjoyed this recipe a lot!  I used chicken thighs for a richer taste.  No time to get gochujanh so I used thai red chili paste and a smidge of white miso.  Didn't have the dark sesame but regular.  I'm sure made as is it would be just as delicious. It came together quickly, had a great color too.

Tasty and messy

The family really enjoyed these.  I used jasmine rice because I had some left over but I'm sure the brown rice would be just great too.  Next time, I'll make a bit more of the dipping sauce.

This was super easy to make. I added a spicy peanut sauce for some extra kick, it balanced out the sweet and salty spectrum pretty well.

The only problem with this recipe was there wasn't enough of it- we could have easily eaten another 1/2 lb of chicken. It was so good!
