You can make endless variations to this dish depending on your preference and taste, but the basic recipe remains the same.

Instructions for chicken bibimbap:

  1. Clean, slice the chicken pieces into small pieces and place them in a mixing bowl.
  2. Finely chop/grate ginger and garlic into the bowl. Also, add sesame oil, soya sauce, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and mix well. 
  3. Clean, cut the chicken into bite (small) size slices and place in a mixing bowl. Cover the bowl and transfer it to the refrigerator for an hour to marinate. 
  4. Now take the veggies and slice them.
  5. On the other side, blanch the spinach leaves for a minute or two. And take the spinach out in a separate bowl.
  6. Heat the pan, add vegetable oil, 1 tbsp of sesame oil, and 1 tbsp of soya sauce. Mix well, and fry sesame seeds. Scoop out about ⅔ of the mixed oil, and keep that aside (it will be used to cook the sauteed chicken). 
  7. In the same pan with less oil, add drained spinach, salt and saute for a minute. Add mushrooms, carrots once it’s cooked, now transfer the veggies into a bowl. 
  8. Take out the marinated chicken. Add ⅓ of the sesame oil mix and heat—Cook marinated chicken on a medium flame. Turn over occasionally from both sides. 
  9. Once it is done, transfer the cooked chicken to a separate plate. 
  10. In the same heated pan, half fry the eggs for the top garnishing—Cook when you assemble the rest ingredients in a bowl. 
  11. In a serving bowl, add a rice layer in the bottom, top it with equal portions of the veggies, chicken and place the fried egg on the top. Next, add bibimbap sauce; you can also use red Thai chilli paste to replace gochujang sauce.

Serve it hot!!
