How do you make Korean BBQ Chicken Thighs?

Alrighty, let’s get to the fun part! Start with the chicken thighs. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Take your chicken thighs and place them onto the sheet pan. Cover the thighs with Korean BBQ sauce, flipping to coat. Doesn’t that smell good already? Next, place your sheet pan of BBQ covered chicken thighs on the middle oven rack. Cook the thighs for about 12 to 15 minutes on each side. (This may be a good time to start your rice). While the chicken is cooking, steam your broccoli. Then toss it in sesame oil, sesame seeds, salt, and garlic powder. The broccoli is the last thing to cook, and a good thing because we’re sure you’re getting hungry! 

Your chicken and rice should be done. All there is to do is serve, portion, and enjoy!

How to portion Korean BBQ Chicken Thighs?

Grab 4 of our meal prep containers. Place two chicken thighs into the 2-cup slots. Add rice and sesame broccoli to each of the 1-cup slots. You can freeze the entire meal as well. Just be sure the rice is still hot so the steam keeps the rice moist for reheating.

Other tips for making Korean BBQ Chicken Thighs:

  • When Korean BBQ chicken thighs are cooked, place them on the top oven rack and broil for about 3 minutes to caramelize the BBQ sauce. Mmmmmm! 

  • Before cooking, rinse chicken thighs in cold water and blot off excess water with a paper towel. This will enhance the Korean BBQ sauce. You can also salt your chicken thighs before and let the salt marinate in the chicken for a few hours. If you do that, wash the thighs before salting and don’t wash them again. 

  • Chicken should at least reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a meat thermometer to check. 

  • BBQ turns out even better with a rub. We found a gluten-free Korean BBQ rub on Amazon to go along with the sauce.
