Michelin starred chef Brad Carter showed us some incredible dishes with Roccbox when he paid us a visit- and this Korean chicken with choripdong flatbread was a firm favourite in the office! I must have made this over a dozen times since Brad showed it to us and now, you can too …
Korean Chicken Skewers
To make the magic paste blend the ginger, garlic and fennel seeds scraping down the side of the blender often. Add the remaining ingredients and blitz for a final 30 seconds. Transfer to a tub and keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Mix together the spice mix and rub all over the chicken legs. Cover and place in the fridge for between 4 and 24 hours.
To make the flatbreads mix the water, yeast and honey and leave in a warm place for a few minutes until frothy.
Mix the flour and salt on a mixer on medium speed then pour in the yeast mixer and mix for around 3 minutes.
Add the remaining dough ingredients and mix for around 7 minutes until the dough is shiny and has elasticity. Leave covered to rest for 10 minutes.
Knead the dough for 30 seconds then transfer to a bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place to prove for 45-60 minutes or until doubled in size.
Transfer the dough onto a lightly oiled surface and shape into 130g balls. Set the dough balls on a lined tray, cover, and leave at room temperature for a further 45-60 minutes.
Flatten the breads with your hands by stretching to a round 8” disc. Once all the breads are flattened, bake them one at a time in a hot Roccbox for around 1 minute on each side.
Push the marinated chicken legs onto a skewer each interweaving them along the skewer to create an even cooking surface.
Preheat a griddle pan in Roccbox and cook the skewers until they reach an internal temperature of 75 degrees celsius. Brush the chicken skewers liberally with the magic paste and allow to rest for a few minutes before removing the skewer and serving with the flatbreads.
