Preparation

  • Start by marinating the chicken. In a medium bowl whisk together the yogurt and kimchi juice till well combined.
  • Add the chicken pieces into the marinade, cover with cling film and marinate for atleast 1 hour but no longer then 24 hours in the fridge.
  • After the marination time continue by making the bread crumbs by breaking up the ciabatta into a food processor bowl. Pulse until you have fine crumbs. Set aside in a shallow bowl.
  • Grease a small baking sheet pan well with a bit of cooking spray and pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and dredge it into the ciabatta crumbs. With your hands mold the crumbs onto the chicken pieces and place on the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake at 375 F. for 35 to 37 minutes until cooked through and brown. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Assemble the bowl by placing the lettuce in a deep bowl. Arrange the remaining vegetables around the top of the bowl as desired placing the kimchi in the center and leaving a space for the chicken pieces.
  • Prepare the dressing by mixing all ingredients in a large measuring cup or a medium bowl, whisk to combine.
  • Add the chicken pieces to the bowl. Garnish with a bit of green onion slices and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Drizzle as much dressing over top as desired and eat straight away.
