A Korean barbecue recipe, Chicken Bulgogi is typically made with a spicy marinade of soy sauce, brown sugar, and sesame oil, then pan-fried to golden-brown perfection and topped with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Despite all those forbidden ingredients, this autoimmune protocol version isn’t far off in terms of taste. With rich Asian-inspired flavors, it pairs exceptionally well with cauliflower rice and stir-fried vegetables. If you’d like, you could even double the amount of marinade and set half aside to cook with some broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, mushrooms, and/or other stir-fry veggies for a quick and easy accompaniment! It’s one of my favorite tricks for a quick and easy weeknight meal that’s guaranteed to satisfy the whole table (and make for some tasty lunchtime leftovers the next day).
