Mongolian Chicken- Lettuce Wraps Korean Style
Do you have that perfect little black dress appropriate for all occasions? That is how I feel about the Mongolian marinade (recipe here) and Kimchee. They are so versatile. You can use the marinade for pork, chicken and beef. Kimchee can also be used in many applications like soup, fried rice, pancakes or just straight up sauteed with nothing else but some sesame oil. I tend to talk a lot about Kimchee don't I? I digress. I marinated some chicken on Sunday thinking they will come in handy when I don't feel like cooking. Today was that day. I put the chicken on the grill, sauteed some Kimchee and served it on some red lettuce. Dinner is served 20 minutes flat. (Josh will argue that it was not 20 minutes, I was doing other stuff too.) My intention was to cut out the carbs now that I have to fit into a wedding dress and look good in it.
I ended up eating a whole bowl of rice with the Kimchee. I am hopeless. :(
Chop some Kimchee
Save the marinade and simmer it up for sauce.
I can polish off a whole bowl of rice with fried Kimchee.
Chop up the chicken and cut up some scallions into thin strips.
Easy peasy dinner in 20 minutes.
