Korean Spicy Chicken Rice Noodle Bake

recipe Detail


This Korean spicy chicken rice noodle bake is not only my new favorite spicy chicken, it’s also my new favorite way to cook rice noodles. Chicken is marinated briefly in a gochujang marinade, then dry rice vermicelli goes directly into the baking dish, chicken thighs are placed on top, and the dish bakes quickly to perfection. As a bonus, the leftovers can be served cold on greens for an amazing salad.
