Things in bowls just taste better, right? I love making variations of different rice bowls, see my chipotle style carnitas bowl, salmon sushi bowl, or my cilantro lime chicken and rice bowl for reference. The layering of flavours, textures and the ability to create so many versions of things never ceases to amaze me. I really never tire of them.
So here's my latest Korean inspired chicken bowls with mushrooms and rice. These are packed with flavour and you can prep the chicken and mushrooms on one large baking sheet in the oven, in under 25 minutes. This makes them perfect for meal prepping too! The gochujang dressing added on top provides a serious kick of flavour, so I don't recommend skipping it.
This recipe isn't traditional, it is simply inspired by Korean flavours and ingredients, such as kimchi and gochujang.
Here's everything you'll need to make these delicious Korean inspired chicken bowls.
One of the things I love about making this Korean chicken bowl is that you don't need to marinate the chicken for long. Of course, you can if you have the time, but I've put it pretty much straight in the oven after mixing it together and it's still delicious.
The first thing you'll do is grab a large bowl. Then combine the avocado oil, gochujang, tamari, rice vinegar, sugar, garlic and ginger and mix well.
Add the chicken to the bowl and toss to combine.
Transfer the chicken to a second large rimmed baking sheet (you can use parchment paper if you want an easier clean up).
Place both trays in the oven (the chicken on the top rack) and cook for 20 minutes. Remove the mushrooms and set aside. Broil the chicken for three to four minutes, just to brown the tops of them.
Add the kale to a large bowl and drizzle with avocado oil and a little bit of rice vinegar. Massage the kale with your hands and season with salt to taste.
Mix together the ingredients for the gochujang sauce and set aside.
Assemble the bowls by adding rice, chicken, mushrooms, kale and kimchi. Serve with the sauce drizzled on top when ready to eat.
