A Korean barbecue recipe, Chicken Bulgogi is typically made with a spicy marinade of soy sauce, brown sugar, and sesame oil, then pan-fried to golden-brown perfection and topped with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Despite all those forbidden ingredients, this Autoimmune Protocol version isn’t far off in terms of taste.

With rich Asian-inspired flavors, it pairs exceptionally well with cauliflower rice and stir-fried vegetables. If you’d like, you could even double the amount of marinade and set half aside to cook with some broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, mushrooms, and/or other stir-fry-friendly veggies for a quick and easy accompaniment!

    Hi Christina! I made this for dinner tonight and it was so good! My husband liked it, too. Very flavorful. I didn’t know maple sugar existed until I read this recipe. It is perfect for this dish and gives it the right amount of sweetness. Thanks for your hard work!
