This is a twist to a very traditional Korean marinade. We use boneless chicken thighs, but you can easily substitute for chicken breasts. Be sure to marinate the chicken at least 4 hours in the refrigerator before grilling. Do not remove any excess marinade, as it becomes a glaze when grilling.

At home we make lettuce wraps with red leaf lettuce, a little rice, kimchi, green onions, and some of the remaining marinade as a sauce. It’s a perfect light and healthy meal for the hot summer months.” – Daniel Ajtai, Yong at Finn Hall
