Easy Bulgogi Chicken Bowl

This is an easy way to clean out your fridge and use up leftover chicken (or protein of choice) because you can essentially use any kind of vegetables to put this bowl together! I love to throw in any greens, some carrots, green onions, and sprouts (if I have some) over some rice. Give it a generous drizzle of gochujang aioli and there you have itโ€” a super easy weeknight dinner that tastes delicious!

Don’t have any leftover meat in your fridge? That’s okay! You can use this spicy chicken bulgogi marinade for shredded rotisserie chicken, crispy tofu, or even roasted veggies (my favorite is crispy chickpeas).

This is one of my favorite ways to use up leftovers and make a simple but delicious weeknight dinner.
