Sometimes the best of recipes are the easiest. This Korean BBQ Chicken recipe is super simple and so good. You can use this chicken all week long in salads, with veggies, rice, stir fry noodles, you name it! Time to step outside the box a little and try a new kind of flavor on your chicken. This is a great place to start!

I have a deep love and very strong opinions about using chicken thighs. Let me just say that the extra flavor, from the few extra grams of fat, is well worth it! If you typically always use chicken breast, you MUST grab some chicken thighs next time. I always use boneless, skinless, chicken thighs. You can find them just about anywhere.

It doesn’t get much easier than this. Grab a gallon size ziplock bag, throw your thighs in there with the rest of the ingredient’s, and let it marinade over night or a couple of hours. No need to trim off any excess fat or anything. Most of it will melt right off when you grill it anyway.

Another secret to making really good chicken is to not overcook it. Use a meat thermometer and take it right to 165 degrees and no more. When reheating leftovers in the microwave, heat on half power so you don’t kill it and dry it out. No one likes dry chicken.

  1. The chicken looks delish! I just had a question about the pears. Are they only for the marinade or do you eat them (chopped or sliced?) with the chicken?

  2. Why does your nutri info say there is no saturated fat? Even without the skin, chicken thighs have saturated fat…something I watch very closely due to my high LDL.

  3. No. I entered this recipe into MFP. Calories of Chicken thighs alone is more than the calories in total. I’m so confused.

    1. This recipe is made and calculated using boneless, skinless, chicken thighs. The macros alone of 4 ounces of boneless skinless is 19 protein and 4 fat. The recipe calculation is correct for this recipe when cooked.

  4. how come when I add this recipe to My Fitness Pal you says it is 300 calories per serving where your recipe says 191 calories? I have it set for 6 servings an I did not add rice or any additional vegetables, etc. I’m befuddled. Thank you

    1. Hi! I think you’re looking at the Korean ground Turkey bowl in MFP. That’s a different recipe. Make sure to search and select the, “Stay Fit Mom Korean BBQ Chicken”.
