INGREDIENTS
1 kg boneless, skinless chicken thighs
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/2 cup Gochujang paste (Korean hot pepper paste)
1/3 cup rice syrup (or 1/4 cup sugar)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Living Goodness Sum Yum Kimchi

INGREDIENTS FOR ASIAN SLAW
2 cups red cabbage, finely sliced
2 cups green cabbage, finely sliced
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon minced ginger

1 tablespoon rice syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce

METHOD
• Combine garlic, ginger, hot pepper paste, rice syrup, sesame oil in a bowl and mix it well with a spoon. Combine the paste with chicken thighs and mix it well by hand. 
• Refrigerate for 10 to 30 minutes.
• Grill or BBQ the chicken on medium heat for 30 minutes, or until well cooked. Keep flipping the chicken over with your tongs so they don’t burn on the grill. Brush on any remaining hot sauce after the first turn over.
