Korean Roasted Chicken with Ginger Scallion Sauce
New favorite weeknight dinner: roasted spatchcocked korean chicken. marinade made with soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, gochujang, garlic chili oil, paprika + spicy bean paste. Served with a blended ginger scallion sauce (you can also just chop by hand with sesame oil + salt), rice and served family style with butter lettuce wraps! Just set on the table and make your wraps as you go. SO good.
I am all about family style meals and this one is nooo joke! we roasted this in the oven while prepping the scallion sauce, cooking the rice in the rice cooker and washing the lettuce wraps – it came together in no – time with minimal dishes. I served it on the kitchen table with knife and forks and we just went at it as we went, making a lettuce wraps with the chicken, adding the scallion sauce and then also rice. So heavenly!

This recipe is poorly written. In the first step, paprika is listed as an ingredient, but it is not listed in the ingredient list.
The last step asks for a mixture of several ingredients, but doesn’t state anything about how much should be in the mixture. There is no indication of how often to baste.
