Skillet Chicken Bulgogi


This bulgogi chicken is a quick-and-easy, but very tasty, meal. You can substitute the chicken with beef or pork for variety. My wife and I absolutely love this recipe, and it only takes 30 minutes with very few dirty dishes! Serve over rice.

Add vegetables if you wish; I normally use carrot straws and sliced mushrooms. For a little more bite, I use a peppercorn medley grinder instead of black pepper. You can substitute peanut oil for the sesame oil, if desired.
