Ginger Marinated Bulgogi Style Chicken

On our last trip to LA we stumbled upon the most amazing Korean restaurant. It wasn’t our first time to try Korean, but it was our first time to fall in love with it. All I can say is, it’s completely under rated. Clean, light and tangy, this recipe is the perfect way to spice up midweek chicken and veg. Plus, as this Korean classic traditionally uses beef, we’ll be trying the exact same recipe with thinly sliced beef tonight, yum xx
