I made a very loose interpretation of Korean Buldak, which directly translates to spicy or fire chicken. Using our Sweet & Spicy Noodles, this meal is the definition of quick yet flavorful cooking in a pinch. I use the gochujang base in our new noodles and punch that sweet and spicy flavor up even more, plus add in aromatic Toasted Sesame Oil and savory Soy Sauce to bring this dish together.
Start by preparing a pot of water and bring that to a boil. Grab some chicken thighs, and if you have an Anyday Bowl, which I highly recommend, throw them in that bowl. Cut up the chicken thighs to reduce cooking time, season with Momofuku Toasted Sesame Oil and Momofuku Soy Sauce, then throw it in the microwave on high for 7-8 minutes. Cooking the chicken this way is efficient and avoids any cross contamination.
Slice and add in a scallion to your chicken and sauce. Then, directly add in your cooked noodles and mix until the noodles are evenly coated with sauce.
Serve with a drizzle of Momofuku Toasted Sesame Oil and Momofuku Chili Crunch. If you want, feel free to add cheese on top and let it slightly melt over top of the whole dish. I’m in the minority that doesn’t like cheese on Korean dishes, but I know so many people do.
