Kimchi Chicken with Korean BBQ Marinade

Background Info

Kimchi is a Korean fermented superfood full of great lactobacilli bacteria and antioxidants. It's cabbage based and is usually quite spicy. Although I love fermented and spicy food, I'm not a great fan of eating Kimchi in its raw natural state - it's not "tangy" enough for me and tends to remind me of smelly wet cabbage, however, I do like cooking with it because it enhances the taste and goes particularly well with chicken!

Recipe Info

Prep Time
5 mins
Cook Time
60 mins
Serves or Units
4 people


  • 500g of Kimchi (you can buy it from good Asian grocers or ferment it yourself)
  • 1kg of boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 x large brown onion - roughly chopped
  • 4 x tablespoons of Korean BBQ chicken/pork marinade
  • Brown noodles thin style 120g  


  1. Add a little peanut or canola oil to a pan and brown off the chicken pieces plus saute the onion at the same time - this should take about 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in the Kimchi (with all it's juices) and add the marinade then simmer with occasional stirring for about 45 mins.
  3. Bring a medium pot of water to the boil (or boil a kettle) and 5 mins before serving turn off the water then submerge the noodles. 
  4. Make sure the chicken is cooked through (it should be by now)
  5. Drain the noodles - plate up the Kimchi BBQ chicken with a serving of noodles as the base.

Kimchi goes really well with this recipe and although I'm not the biggest fan of eating Kimchi on its own I do like cooking with it.

If you've never tried Kimchi then you should because it's one of the most famous fermented foods (kind of like the Asian equivalent of the German sauerkraut) although they taste nothing like each other. 

This dish is very easy to make and for such a low effort it's amazing how the Kimchi combined with the Korean BBQ sauce can make such flavours when married with chicken. 

I love it!
