    One bowl meals are great, aren’t they? So many flavors all packed together. We love them all, like our Chicken Burrito Bowl, Tuna Tataki Bowl, and even our Korean Ground Beef Bowl, which has some similarities to this recipe, but is still unique in it’s own way.

    Why You’ll Make this Korean Chicken Bowl Again and Again

    • The combination of flavors and textures is spot on. The fluffy rice, tender ground chicken, crisp carrots and cabbage, and cool cucumbers go together so well.
    • It’s a healthy meal, loaded with lean protein and plenty of nutrients from a variety of veggies.
    • You can easily double the recipe for meal prep. Just store the hot and cold components separately, then quickly assemble when ready to eat.
    • It’s customizable to what you have on hand. If you’re missing a vegetable, it can easily be swapped out for something that’s already in your fridge.

    Ingredients

    • Cooking oil – We use canola, but use any of your favorite high smoke point oils.
    • Ground chicken – Go for regular ground chicken. Ground white meat is too lean and can become dry.
    • Aromatics – Ginger, garlic, scallions.
    • Sauce – Soy sauce, gochujang, honey, sesame oil, Korean red chili flakes.
    • Rice – We prefer basmati, but use any of your favorites as the base of the bowl.
    • Veggies – Carrot, purple cabbage, cucumber.
    • Egg – It really completes the bowl.

    Korean Ground Chicken Bowl Recipe

    1. Make the sauce: Combine soy sauce, gochujang, honey, sesame oil, and Korean red chili flakes in a bowl, mix well.

    2. Cook the chicken: Sauté ground chicken and cook till browned. Add ginger, garlic and scallion, and cook for another minute or two. Mix in the sauce, then cook till chicken is cooked through.

    3. Fry eggs: You can do this while the chicken is cooking.

    4. Assemble your bowls: Divide recipe among four bowls. Fill the bottom of the bowls with rice, top with chicken mixture and vegetables, then finish with an egg on top.

    Variations and Substitutions

    • Meat – You can easily swap the chicken for any other ground meat you have on hand.
    • Sauce – If you don’t have gochujang handy, sriracha is a suitable replacement. Likewise, if you’re missing Korean red pepper flakes, paprika is the best substitution.
    • Grains – Replace the white rice with brown rice, or even quinoa.
    • Veggies – Other veggies that would go great here are snow pea or steamed edamame.
    • Eggs – Not a fan of runny eggs? Use hard fried, they’re still great in this bowl.
    • Garnishes – We like some sesame seeds or the green parts of scallions on top. You can give your bowl a boost of flavor with a drizzle of some great sauce. Try Sriracha Mayo, Yum Yum Sauce, or if you really like it spicy, some of our favorite Chili Oil.

    Leftovers and Meal Prep

    This can easily be your Asian themed lunches for the whole week. The chicken and rice can be refrigerated either separately or together for 4-5 days.

    For meal prep, we recommend storing your rice and chicken together in a microwave safe dish. The veggies can be cut ahead of time and refrigerated separately.

    When ready to eat, microwave the chicken and rice till warmed through, then add the veggies. We do recommend cooking the eggs fresh.
