A note about serious food allergies

Korean cuisine has its own identity in southeast Asia, and we bring those flavors to bear in this dish. Grilled chicken breast gets glazed with a mixture of honey and gochujang, which is a spread of chiles mixed into a paste with rice and fermented soy. This spicy-sweet condiment is like Sriracha with a "New Yorker" subscription--spicy and deliciously complex. We serve it with a refreshing salad of pear and shaved vegetables for an easy and healthy weeknight meal.
